Stephanie Klapper

As Deputy Director at Maryland Health Care for All! Coalition Ms. Klapper advocates for quality, affordable health care for all Marylanders alongside hundreds of faith, business, labor, policy, community, and health organizations.

Ms. Klapper has successfully advocated for legislation to create a health equity program which will direct millions of dollars to reduce health disparities, increase access and affordability of coverage offered through Maryland Health Connection, and create and fund the first-in-the-nation Prescription Drug Affordability Board. She has served as a consumer representative on state workgroups hosted by the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, Health Services Cost Review Commission, and Maryland Health Care Commission. She also oversaw creation of the Maryland Faith Health Network to create stronger connections between health systems and faith congregations.

Ms. Klapper taught a public health advocacy course at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health with her colleagues Vincent DeMarco and Catherine Kirk Robins and enjoys making presentations on effective advocacy to organizations and in classrooms around the state.

In 2018 Ms. Klapper received the first annual “Innovation in Social Work” Award by the University of Maryland Baltimore School of Social Work Alumni Council.”
