“Amanda brings a wealth of experience as we continue to support federal and state initiatives that level the playing field for patients to improve health and wellness for the more than 50 million people living with autoimmune diseases and their families,” said Molly Murray, President and CEO of the Autoimmune Association.
Prior to joining the association, Krzepicki worked for the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) on its priority issues on Capitol Hill and in the Administration.

“I am thrilled to once again be advocating for patients and look forward to advancing the Association’s mission to improve healthcare, advance research, and support the community,” said Krzepicki. “It is a privilege to serve the millions of Americans living with an autoimmune disease.”
Krzepicki holds a Master of Public Health in Health Policy from The George Washington University and a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise from Virginia Tech. She is based in Washington, D.C.
