General Manager Louisiana

Job Description

Who we are

Live Chair Health is on a mission to help reduce the health disparities across the US. We’re helping health plans and health systems engage and activate their members, especially those that they historically struggled to reach.

We do so by combining the best of community-organizing, consumer marketing, and technology to form a unique activation strategy that works with and empowers the respective communities and creates change from the bottom-up.

We’re currently working with some of the largest Medicaid health plans as well as health systems across the country. Having started in Maryland and California, we’re actively expanding into Louisiana and Washington, D.C. We’ve raised a Seed financing round and are backed by some of the most renown investors and individuals in healthcare, culturally-relevant brand building, and consumer marketing.
