Megan Hollingworth, MSW ‘05

  • Clinical Affordability Manager for UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Pennsylvania

“I chose Penn’s MSW program not only for the prestigious university, but because Penn’s emphasis on macro practice made sense and was a good fit for me. In my current work I use healthcare economic trend data to identify care gaps for Medicaid members with complex needs, and build programs to support them accordingly. I am passionate about working to design programs to impact population level health, and my time at SP2 provided me with the ability to analyze data effectively, identify, evaluate and address programmatic challenges, and understand organizational dynamics. So many features of SP2 appealed to me: the amazing professors and their accessibility and genuine interest in teaching and supporting students, the small but diverse student body working to tackle challenges and driven by a need to “make change”, and the challenging coursework were among the driving factors in making my decision, and I have never regretted it! My social work degree from Penn has opened doors and led me to new and intriguing opportunities ever since.”
