Dear Valued Friends,
I am pleased to announce that after an extensive search, the Board of Directors has selected Marion McGowan as Executive Director of Prosthetics Outreach Foundation (POF). We welcome her to the team.
Marion comes to us with a wide variety of experience working internationally and in global health in both the private and nonprofit sectors. Most recently, she served as Country Director in Serra Leone for GOAL, an international humanitarian organization, which conducted nutrition and water/sanitation projects serving disadvantaged communities. She has worked in several developing countries and in addition to Sierra Leone, has lived in Sudan, Korea and Indonesia for extended periods.
We are excited to have Marion join us during this pivotal time. In the coming years, we will look to expand our impact and continue to develop sustainable interventions in our target countries. Under her leadership, POF will continue its mission to improve the mobility and independence of the physically disabled children and adults in developing countries.
We would also like to thank Mary Luft Gladhart for serving as Interim Executive Director. Mary stepped in to lead the organization and ensured a smooth transition. Mary’s commitment to the organization is evident through her many years of support and service on POF’s Board.
Robert G. Veith, M.D.
