Healthcare Sharing Accreditation Board


Healthcare Sharing Accreditation Board

Board Members

Diane Black

Board President

Co-founder & Chairman of the Board of Second Vote.

Congresswoman Black’s faith in America’s promise was shaped from an early age. The middle daughter of Great Depression-era parents, Diane spent the earliest years of her life in public housing and would go on to become the first person in her family to earn a college education.

As a registered nurse, small businesswoman, and former educator, Diane Black brought a unique and dynamic perspective to her work as a legislative leader in both Tennessee and Washington. In Congress, Diane served as Chairman of the House Budget Committee, where she worked to draft the 2018 fiscal year budget that cut millions of dollars in wasteful spending and confronted the crippling debt burden in Washington. Diane also served on the House Ways and Means Committee and led efforts to reform the U.S. tax code for the first time in over three decades.

In over 40 years of experience working in the healthcare field, Diane learned firsthand about the importance of high quality care and the obstacles faced by patients, health care providers, and employers. Her real-world experiences as a nurse have uniquely positioned her as a credible and effective leader on healthcare policy.
