Volunteers in Medicine Berkshires Names Treasurer, Trustee

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — W. Scott Rogers has joined the Volunteers in Medicine Berkshires as treasurer and member of the Board of Trustees. 

Rogers has more than 30 years of experience as a professional economist, including more than 20 years in senior roles at the International Monetary Fund. His expertise in both the government and corporate sectors covers fiscal, monetary and exchange rate policy, debt management, inflation risk management, and national energy planning. 

"Scott's extensive international experience will bring a new, broader perspective to our board," said Arthur M. Peisner, VIM's chairman of the board.  "At the same time, his current service as chair of the Finance Committee for the town of Windsor ensures he's deeply aware of the needs of our rural population. He will be an integral member of the VIM team at a time of unprecedented challenge for our patient base."

From 1992 to 2014, Rogers served in a variety of roles at the International Monetary Fund. As mission chief to Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Niger, Cape Verde, Burundi and Eritrea, he led the IMF's financial negotiations and annual country consultations and helped design economic and financial policy frameworks to promote sustainable economic growth.  While at the IMF, Scott also served as senior resident representative to Nigeria, Kenya and the Federal Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and was a senior economist and desk officer for Uganda.  

Before joining the IMF, Rogers was a senior economist in the International Economics Department at DRI/McGraw Hill, an economist in the Industrial Countries Division at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and an economic associate in the National Center for the Analysis of Energy Systems at Brookhaven National Laboratory. 

Rogers and his wife Susan Phillips live in Windsor, Mass. They have two grown children whom they don't see enough. He received a B.A. in economics from Swarthmore College and a Ph.D. in economics, with concentrations in applied macroeconomics, and international and development economics from Boston University. 

VIM's mission is to provide access to quality health care for income-qualified, uninsured and underinsured adults living in the Berkshire region. VIM provides free, integrated medical and dental care, behavioral health services, optometry, nutrition counseling, massage and acupuncture and has pioneered Shared Medical Appointments and a Non-Opioid Pain Management Program in Berkshire County.
