In this role, Benjamin will help the Foundation pioneer new ways to co-create healthy communities, sustain advances in health outcomes, and eliminate unjust differences in health and health care, in particular among the vulnerable senior population. She brings a strong understanding of the social determinants of health and a passion for closing systemic gaps in education and employment, wealth and financial security, social connectedness, and food security.
While at Lilly, Benjamin served in various roles within the legal function from 2013-2018, including Assistant General Counsel, Assistant Corporate Secretary; and anti-corruption counsel.
