Hello everyone. Let me introduce myself. My name is Pamela Jacques and I am the new Executive Director for the Epilepsy Foundation of Western Ohio. I am excited about what the future holds for the Foundation. Our priority is to serve those who live with epilepsy and their families- so you will see more programs and services being offered designed to do just that- serve. Right now we're in the process of shoring up our resources and planning our longer term goals.
A little background about me. I have spent most of my professional life working in nonprofits, including 21 years at Premier Health here in Dayton. The last 9 of which was as the Executive Director of Premier Community Health, which used to be a small subsidiary of Premier that offered health and wellness programs to the community. I have a Master of Science from California College for Health Sciences in Health Services and a Bachelors degree in Communications from Wright State University. I'm also a Certified Health Education Specialist.
It is my privilege to serve this area and those living with epilepsy and their families. I plan to share our progress here as we move forward. If you have a topic you'd like to hear more about, please let us know. Perhaps we can make it the topic of one of these blogs.
To new beginnings!
