Logan Dennis

Logan is the Health Care Policy Research and Communications Associate with Idaho Voices for Children. He produces health care policy research on Medicaid expansion and other health policies, with an emphasis on strategic messaging to appeal to legislators and voters in Idaho. In this capacity, Logan helped build broad bipartisan coalitions to support health care policy change in Idaho. He developed media and public outreach strategies, wrote media releases, and built strategic relationships with journalists. Logan assisted in coordinating Close the Gap Idaho and Idahoans for Healthcare, which led the Medicaid expansion campaign in the 2018 election cycle, ending with 61% of the popular vote and 80% of Idaho counties voting in favor. He also coordinated legislative efforts to stop restrictions on Medicaid and developed messaging guides and strategic plans to persuade lawmakers and constituents to support funding for Medicaid expansion.
