Lori makes quality a priority and encourages a future in which Keystone Wellness Programs demonstrates its commitment to public health on many levels. She shares a renewed passion with skilled health educators, encouraging them to pursue projects related to their unique skills and interests.
Since taking over leadership, Lori is most proud of the accomplishments of the agency staff including developing several new collaborations such as those with the Beaver County Office on Aging, Gamblers Anonymous, Lanie’s Hope, Community College of Beaver County, Temple University, Slippery Rock University, and Not One More Pittsburgh Chapter.
One of the recent successful projects developed by Keystone Wellness Programs includes the innovative Forward/U, a choice-coaching program for parents and teens. Our health educators are professionals and handle each project with creativity and tenacity, as shown by continued evaluation and improvement in all programs. We strive not to just meet our funders’ goals, but to exceed them and do it with a team of educators who work well as a team and complement each other’s strengths.
We are also proud of the Beaver County response to our Town Hall Meetings, offered annually since 2014. Keystone Wellness Programs coordinated successful events with national and local speakers who participated in a dialog with community members on the problems of prescription drug abuse and the heroin crisis in our community.
Lori welcomes new partnerships and opportunities. Keystone Wellness Programs will collaborate with like-minded agencies to promote the health and wellness of our region. If you have an idea for a joint project, or just want to say hello, call or stop by any time, or connect with me on Linked In.
