FPF is pleased to welcome Henry Claypool as a senior fellow. Henry is currently Policy Director at the Community Living Policy Center at the University of California, San Francisco. He is the former Director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Disability and a founding Principal Deputy Administrator of the Administration for Community Living. He also served as a presidentially-appointed member of the Federal Commission on Long-Term Care, advising Congress on how long-term care can be better provided and financed for the nation’s older adults and people with disabilities, now and in the future, and was Executive Vice President of the American Association of People with Disabilities, which promotes equal opportunity, economic power, independent living and political participation for people with disabilities. He is Affiliated Faculty at the Institute for Health & Aging at UCSF and principal of Claypool Consulting.
At FPF, Henry will lead our outreach and research efforts to promote understanding of the range of ways Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are being used to empower those with disabilities and bring disability advocates into privacy-data-technology policy debates. He will be responsible for convening a series of meetings to advance understanding of core privacy issues related to IoT, to address issues, concerns, and goals of the disability community, and to ensure input of disability groups into IoT policy development.
Please join us in welcoming Henry to the team!
