HUPAC Roundup: HUPAC Announces Exciting Annual Convention Events

HUPAC is hosting two exciting events at this year’s virtual Annual Convention! We are excited to announce that lobbyists Corey Malmgren and Andrew McKechnie will give the HUPAC Capitol Club happy hour keynote discussing factions and personalities within the 117th Congress.

Andrew has been working with NAHU for several years as a consultant representing the firm Tiber Creek Group. During his time on Capitol Hill and as a consultant, Andrew has been a key player for over a decade on many of the major legislative and regulatory efforts impacting the healthcare sector.

Andrew previously served as policy advisor to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) while he was the Senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. Prior to his work with Senator Grassley and the Senate Finance Committee, he served as a legislative assistant to former Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) and former Rep. Jim Ramstad (R-MN), a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee. In addition to his legislative experience on Capitol Hill, Andrew has worked on presidential, House and Senate campaigns. With a strong background in healthcare policy, Andrew is a particularly valuable resource to clients trying to navigate and respond to the highly regulated healthcare industry. Andrew lives in DC with his wife and two children. In his free time, he is a competitive triathlete, completing four Ironman races.

Corey recently joined Tiber Creek Group after serving as executive director of U.S. policy and government relations at Merck. Prior to joining Merck, she was health counsel and deputy legislative director to Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL). As the Senator’s principal health policy advisor, Corey counseled him on a range of legislative and regulatory issues related to Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act and public health, working routinely with the Senate Finance Committee. She previously served as legislative counsel for Rep. Sandy Levin (D-MI), where she partnered with the House Ways and Means Committee staff to advise Rep. Levin on health, budget, debt ceiling, Social Security and income security policy issues. Corey graduated from the University of Mary Washington and the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law.
