ENACT’s New Communications Team
In keeping with ENACT’s interdisciplinary approach to research, training and outreach activities, two graduate students from Boston University’s School of Public Health and College of Communications recently joined ENACT’s team. Under the guidance of Director of Dissemination, Dr. Mary Slavin, Liz and Michelle coordinate ENACT’s communication activities, including newsletters, website development, and the effective integration of social media.
Liz Simpson (right) joined ENACT as center administrator in September 2011. She is currently completing a master’s degree in Community Health Sciences. Her interests in active aging and research led her to meet with Dr. Julie Keysor, ENACT Center Director, who offered the opportunity to work in a position which combined these interests with public health considerations. Michelle Carpenter (left), Master’s candidate in Advertising Studies, brought her previous experience working with quality of life non-profit agencies to ENACT in March 2012. She is pursuing an advanced degree with an emphasis in Creative Strategy and enjoys applying her studies in a practical setting as ENACT’s new communications coordinator.
Together, Liz and Michelle are an energetic team, committed to bringing ENACT’s academic and clinical expertise to professionals in the field of rehabilitation and to persons living with arthritis.
