Laura designs and executes our corporate communication strategy to promote and disseminate KDHRC research and programs through traditional and social media. She started her career at KDHRC as a research associate supporting the Food and Drug Administration’s “The Real Cost” mass media advertising campaign to prevent youth tobacco use. She helped inform, conceptualize, revise, and vet scientifically accurate, innovative messaging content for Facebook, Twitter, web, TV, and out-of-home platforms.
Laura graduated from Georgia Southern University with a B.S. in Biology and an MPH in Epidemiology. Prior to working at KDHRC, she spent time at the American Cancer Society as a research intern in the Economic and Health Policy Research Department.
When she’s not connecting with potential partners or sharing KDHRC’s products with communities, you can find Laura exploring new hiking trails along the Chattahoochee River, reading in the park, and traveling to new cities.
