Ann Christiano, Frank Karel Chair in Public Interest Communications at the University of Florida–and a favorite FPRA state conference presenter–will share her expertise on Public Interest Communications to Create Positive Social Change, a field dedicated to using strategic communications to drive change, working in such areas as health, human rights, environment and poverty.
Before joining the University of Florida, Christiano directed communications for The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Vulnerable Populations portfolio. This portfolio creates new opportunities for better health by investing in health where it starts and grows–in our homes, schools and jobs. As part of her work, Christiano oversaw communications strategies for programs like the Greenhouse project, which is a radical reinvention of the traditional long term care model, and CeaseFire, which uses a public health approach to reduce gun violence in America’s most violent neighborhoods. Christiano was named the 2014-15 University of Florida Teacher of the Year.
