Congratulations to PolicyLab Co-Director Kathleen Noonan!

Kathleen Noonan, JD, has been appointed to the newly created role of Associate Vice President of Board Relations at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). She will be reporting directly to Madeline Bell, the Chief Executive Officer of CHOP. In this new role, Kathleen will coordinate governance activities across the Hospital, facilitating the work of the Board of Trustees and Foundation Board of Overseers and their associated committees in coordination with the Office of the CEO and the senior executive team.  She will support the Trustees in fulfilling their fiduciary and governance responsibilities, managing key processes and information flow to ensure adherence to governance best practice. 

In 2008, Kathleen founded PolicyLab with her Co-Director, Dr. David Rubin, to position research being done by clinicians at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to better influence the lives of vulnerable children and youth. Today, PolicyLab is an interdisciplinary center with over 60 clinicians, faculty and staff working to improve pediatric health outcomes. We thank Kathleen for helping us build and grow PolicyLab and are delighted to announce that she will remain actively involved with PolicyLab going forward, serving as the Senior Legal and Policy Advisor.
