The Heritage Foundation Board of Trustees this week approved the appointment of Dr. Charmaine Yoest as vice president of the Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity. In this role, she will be responsible for providing strategic guidance in the domestic policy areas of health care, welfare, education, life, marriage, and religious liberty.
Yoest brings to Heritage years of experience in public policy and government. She most recently served in the Trump administration as an associate director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. Prior to her White House role, Yoest was assistant secretary for public affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“We are excited to welcome such a talented leader, dedicated conservative, and policy scholar to our best-in-class team at Heritage,” said President Kay Coles James. “Charmaine joins our leadership team at a critical time for America. As we confront challenges and formulate policy solutions, she will be at the forefront of helping us make a tremendous impact.”
