Amanda Gallipeau is a coordinator with the Health Law Unit in Empire Justice Center's Rochester office.  Her work is focused on assisting those who are struggling to access health benefits, providing direct client services, and technical assistance and training to advocates.  She is responsible for the management and reporting of the various funding contracts that support the work of the Health Team.  Amanda provides technical assistance and is the substantive trainer for the Ambassadors for Coverage program, funded by the NYS Health Foundation, which provides grants to organizations across New York State to conduct targeted outreach to hard-to-reach populations and provide them with accurate information on accessing health care coverage through the NYS Health Exchange Marketplace.  

Amanda serves on the Partnership on the Uninsured, a community partnership whose mission is to increase health insurance coverage and expand access to care by promoting universal coverage, monitoring state policy, and tracking the impact of the lack of insurance in the region.

Before joining Health Team, Amanda previously worked in the Foreclosure Prevention unit at Empire Justice Center.  Her work focused on advocating for low income homeowners who had been targeted by predatory lenders, as well as with those homeowners who are unable to meet current mortgage obligations in an attempt to prevent foreclosure.
