Bushwick Resident to Join American Lung Association’s Leadership Board
(February 17, 2015)
(New York, NY) – The American Lung Association of the Northeast is proud to welcome Meghan Pope, of Brooklyn, to its New York City Leadership Board. Carlson is the Founder and President of OPAL Advising, a full-service consultancy for small and mid-size businesses.
Popes’s grandmother died from a smoking-related-illness and suffered from emphysema. For Pope, getting involved with the Lung Association’s Leadership Board was a great fit. “I knew I wanted to get involved with a non-profit organization dedicated to improving public health. Given my strategic background and my personal background it quickly became clear that the Lung Association’s leadership board was the right opportunity,” Pope said.
“The Lung Association is honored to have Meghan Pope join our Leadership Board in New York City,” said Jeff Seyler, President & CEO of the American Lung Association of the Northeast. “Meghan’s experience with digital advertising and consulting will help spread our mission of improving lung health and preventing lung disease from a strategic standpoint. Our leadership board is looking forward to working with Meghan in the near future,” Seyler said.
Pope said her experience with social media and marketing will help engage others to learn more about the Lung Association. “That part of the job fascinates me. I’m a big networker, I also belong to the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, so I’ll be able to spread the word about the Lung Association and all of its great work,” Pope said.
“I’m excited to be involved in taking the country’s oldest, non-profit voluntary health organization and getting new wave of people involved. I think it’s an interesting time for health-related non-profits. It’s a great new frontier for organizations to try out multiple strategies and I’m glad to be involved,” Pope said.
