Mitch Scoggins Joins Board

The Libertarian Policy Institute is proud to announce the appointment of Mitch Scoggins to the board.

Mitch Scoggins is an experienced public health professional, having worked within both state government and federal the federal government as well as on international relief programs in sub-Saharan Africa and Eastern Europe.

Scoggins joins the board as a public health expert during a time when public policy and public health intersect every day. His experience will be instrumental in guiding the Institute.

Based in Wisconsin, Scoggins holds a Master’s degree in Public Health Policy from the George Washington University and manages a health care consulting business.

The Institute’s mission is to transform “the theory of libertarianism into practical, tangible solutions to the myriad of challenges faced by all levels of government,” said Scoggins, “and I look forward to working with the Institute toward that goal.”

Scoggins joins board president Ricky Dale Harrington, Jr. and board members R.J. Lyman and Judge John Buttrick as the fourth in a series of board appointments.

“We know that almost nothing hits as close to home as health policy,” said operations director Richard Manzo. “People people need more than just theory. They need practical solutions that are designed and implemented by those with close experience addressing these issues. Mitch is a force for that.”
