Scott Allen, MS

Dayton, Ohio, September 21, 2021—With 30 years’ experience managing nonprofits, including 24 years in health care, Scott brings extensive administrative skills along with health care education and quality improvement experience to FMEC. He is passionate about primary care and supporting physicians and physicians-in-training to improve their practices and communities.

Scott began his career at American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), working in fundraising, specialty education, and clinical policy development. Moving to the state level, Scott served as Executive Director of the Illinois Chapter AAP (Chapter) for fifteen years, leading it from a dormant, under-resourced organization to one of the largest AAP state chapters, with a strong staff and over $2 million in annual revenue. Scott was one of the first three in Illinois to receive the National Committee on Quality Assurance’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Certified Content Expert designation. He grew the Chapter’s patient-centered care programming through partnerships with the state Medicaid program, health systems across the state, and private funders.

Scott’s success turned the Chapter into a respected education and advocacy organization, and motivated healthcare providers to collaborate, including family physicians. Under his leadership, multi-year initiatives were developed on screening for developmental delays and autism, perinatal maternal depression, prevention and management of obesity, tobacco control, other substance use disorder prevention and treatment, mental health, and more.

Most recently, Scott expanded initiatives and secured new funders at the Public Library Association. Scott is pleased to return to primary care and excited to work closely with family physicians through FMEC. Scott has been a member of both the American Society of Association Executives and the Association Forum of Chicagoland for many years. He received his BA from Northwestern University and his Master of Science in Nonprofit Management from Spertus College in Chicago, IL.

Dr. Raj Woolever, FMEC President, commented, “Our Board is impressed with Scott’s successful association management, his commitment to primary care, and his strategic instincts. Scott has great experience as a CEO, a strong track record of fundraising, and proven capacity as an education program planner. We look forward to his leadership of FMEC.”
