Background & Experience
Cathryn Hyde comes to Community Health Partnership with 30+ years of service in the public sector and 20+ years of public policy experience. Ms. Hyde most recently served for 16 years as Constituent Services Director for Congressman Mike Honda who represented California's Silicon Valley. Ms. Hyde also arrives with considerable experience at the County government level having served four members of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors as a senior policy advisor.
As CHP’s Policy and External Affairs Manager, Ms. Hyde works closely with our member health centers in developing their advocacy approach and workflow. Her knowledge of policy at the local and federal level has given CHP the capacity it needs to communicate the importance of advocacy in regards to issues such as federal fiscal cliffs, health center funding, immigrant rights, public charge, and issues that have yet to surface. Her passion for promoting and protecting accessible and culturally competent healthcare for all led her to Community Health Partnership where she hopes to continue her lifelong commitment to public service.
