Interact for Health welcomes new member of leadership team; titles change for three staff members

Jan 31, 2020

As Interact for Health continues its efforts to improve the health of all people in Greater Cincinnati, it has made several staffing shifts, including the addition of Harold Brown as Vice President of Strategy and Policy.

Brown brings more than 20 years of experience in philanthropy to his new position. Most recently, he was the Vice President of Community Strategies at the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, providing leadership and strategy for GCF’s grant-making. Previously, Brown held several roles with the KnowledgeWorks Foundation and its subsidiaries focusing on education funding, program development and policies.

Brown earned a Bachelor of arts in government from Harvard University, and completed a mini-MBA from Miami University. A graduate of Leadership Cincinnati Class 34, Brown is also active on several boards, including Mount St. Joseph University and Philanthropy Ohio.

“We want to build partnerships and be a leader in driving change to improve health in our region,” said O’dell Moreno Owens, M.D., M.P.H., President and CEO. “Harold’s vast experience in philanthropy, both on a nationwide and regional level, coupled with his leadership skills, will help guide our teams in efforts to reduce tobacco use, address the opioid epidemic and improve access to care through school-based health centers.”

In addition, three Interact for Health staff members recently received new titles:

  • Lisa Myers is now Program Officer, working with Interact for Health’s opioid team.
  • Kristine Schultz is now Senior Grants Manager, working to ensure compliance with grant-making policies and procedures.
  • Susan Sprigg is now Program Officer, working with Interact for Health’s school-based health center team.
