Case managers are advocates, leaders, influencers, problem-solvers, educators and more! In every work setting and within healthcare in general, there is a common challenge; how to best meet our clients’ needs in an industry that is continually evolving. Legislative and regulatory changes trickle down and lead to more change at the employer level. Initiatives to improve our practice, reinforce our value and protect our profession will ultimately lead to increased recognition that case management is the true healthcare reform.

In 2020, aging Americans have more choices than ever before. As baby boomers consider future long-term care options, new models arise to address individual needs and a culture of choice. From location to roommates, technology to psychology, transportation to socialization – choices abound for seniors in the new era. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, technology-based solutions such as telehealth, previously under-utilized in preference for in-person care, have now become mainstream options. With an overwhelming variety of care models, case managers and care teams must help older adults choose and implement the solutions that will work best for them, navigating a path to independence, quality of life and lower costs.

One year ago, we lost an icon. As CMSA reflects on the memory of the late Margaret “Peggy” Leonard, she is on the mind and in the hearts of many because of her impact on case managers and CMSA members.  The Foundation continues to support programs that were created by Peggy though her passion for not only CMSA and the Foundation but also for Public Policy.

The Margaret Leonard Public Policy Fund encapsulates the passion that the late Peggy Leonard had for developing a better future for the case management industry through a collaborative, inclusive community of healthcare professionals working together to build industry wide solutions to case management issues.  This fund develops opportunities to promote public policy awareness and best practices by effectively communicating and building relationships with legislators, regulators and healthcare agencies  at the local, state and national level to advocate for case management public policy that puts the health of all patients first.   Donations to the fund will be used to educate case managers and other healthcare advocates on how to advance public policy through productive outreach. 

To donate in honor of Peggy’s passion for public policy, visit
