LAYO GEORGE, RN, MHSA
Founder & Population Health Specialist
Layo George is a registered nurse and an entrepreneur focusing on population health. In response to the nationwide maternal health crisis facing black women, Layo founded an organization called Wolomi that provides resources and guidance to improve the experiences and outcomes for black women during their perinatal periods.
As a quality improvement specialist at the District of Columbia Primary Care Association, Layo led 15 healthcare centers through value-based practice transformation and oral health primary care integration. She also served on the leadership team at Mary’s Center’s Capital Clinical Integrated Network that created a citywide care management and coordination program targeting over 170,000 Medicaid high utilizers—the first population health program in Washington, D.C. funded by the federal government innovation center.
Layo began her career as lead contract compliance nurse for the D.C. Department of Health’s immunization program and a women’s health nurse at Medstar Harbor Health in Baltimore, MD. and Mayo Health System in Eau Claire, WI.
In May 2019, she will receive her Master’s in Health Administration System from Georgetown University.
