CRI established the McIntire Fellowship in 2012 in recognition of CRI team member Jan McIntire. Jan supported CRI’s Founders in the development of CRI’s successful 2002 application for 501(c)3 status, and she later became one of CRI’s first employees. Jan served as CRI’s first Strategic Programs Manager and later its first Communications and Operations Director. Jan helped to establish CRI’s culture of accountability, mutual respect for our colleagues and partners, innovation, and fun. In 2012, Jan ended her full-time career after more than 40 years of dedication to the fields of communications and public health.
McIntire Fellows work directly with Jan and other members of the CRI team to develop important skills for effective, accurate, and appropriate communication in the world of work – whether in academic, government, health care, business, non-profit, or industry settings.
