Mona Siddiqui Looks Back on her Time at HHS
Serving at HHS during the last three years has been an enormous privilege. Working with a committed team that has felt a tremendous sense of purpose and mission has made this journey transformational not just for HHS but for each one of us engaged in driving this work forward. Public service is rightly seen as a calling. It is the ultimate place to do work that can lead to better outcomes for us all. I am immensely proud of everything that the Data Team has accomplished and will continue to drive: developing a technology stack to enable enterprise data sharing, implementing a data governance approach, establishing a data science and AI training program and consistently working with a broad group of stakeholders to move the department forward in its strategy on opioids, AI, data privacy, collaboration with states and social determinants of health.
In the past several years, I have worked with some of the smartest and most dedicated colleagues who are undaunted by the complexity of the most pressing challenges facing the healthcare system. I have learned so much through their sustained efforts and willingness to go the extra mile. I leave HHS knowing that few places can have this level of impact and feeling enormously grateful for having had the opportunity to serve.
