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:
Interact for Health regularly conducts research and collects data in order to monitor and evaluate our region’s health status and to measure public opinions about health policy.
Our Health in Action stories highlight the innovative work our grantees are doing to help reduce tobacco use, address the opioid epidemic and ensure that children can access health care through school-based health centers. We also interview people working on those issues at other organizations across the country to learn what works for them.
