Elder Affairs secretary taking UMass Medical School post
Jennifer Davis Carey (left), who served in four governors' adminstrations, will be leaving Beacon Hill to become director of training and education at University of Massachusetts Medical School's Commonwealth Medicine, the school announced today.
She had been secretary for the Executive Office of Elder Affairs since 2003. Governor Deval Patrick has asked cabinet secretaries to send him letters for reappointment, but she said she did not submit one.
"This is a wonderful administration with wonderful people and Governor Patrick is extraordinary, but this is a tremendous opportunity," she said in an interview. "UMass is an extraordinary institution and Commonwealth Medicine is on the cutting edge, so taking their academic assets and putting them together with my educational background and what I learned in public policy really allows me to put these passions together."
"Commonwealth Medicine is like an action tank as opposed to just a think tank," she said. "They do more than just think."
Carey’s experience in state government began when Paul Cellucci was governor; she stayed when Jane M. Swift succeeded him and was promoted during the Mitt Romney administration. From 1999 through 2003 she was director of the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation.
