Brent has been with CareSource for over 16 years promoting and developing marketing strategies which have specifically been crafted to improve the quality of healthcare and alignments of health systems, community agencies and governmental partners to insure accessibility and transformation of life services for the CareSource members being served in Ohio which translates to approximately 1.5 million. Brent has embraced the wellness initiatives of African American Male Wellness Walk (AAMWW) since its inception nearly 13 years ago and CareSource is the statewide corporate sponsor. Brent’s management abilities has extended his marketing skill set onto the national scale where CareSource has expanded to the States of Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Georgia with new products and services designed to improve the quality of healthcare. Quality is the common thread of healthy living and Brent believes it should be the core values of those who play a major role in health care system to insure that quality is always at the pinnacle of wellness and assisting CareSource members with this as a method to navigate into wellness of their total being.
