After 5 years as a Health Educator and Special Projects Coordinator, Hannah Haney has assumed the role of Executive Director of Keystone Wellness Programs. Hannah earned her Masters of Public Health degree from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health with a specialization in Behavioral and Community Health Sciences. With a passion for serving vulnerable populations, Hannah traveled twice to Kenya to design and implement HIV/AIDS education programs within slums. This experience inspired her to continue to utilize the public health approach on issues such as substance use and addiction, mental health, health equity, and policy. She is proud to work with a team of talented, passionate people working to improve health outcomes within our own communities.
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.
Hannah 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.
