In this newly created role, Anna will build the foundation’s first-ever communications function, establishing a vision and strategy to guide all aspects of Metta Fund’s institutional communications, external engagement, visual identity, and media relations. She will also partner with the foundation’s program staff to develop and implement communications strategies that advance visibility and awareness of its initiatives.
“I’m thrilled to welcome more talent to the foundation team as we work to advance the health and wellness of San Francisco’s aging population” said Metta Fund CEO Janet Y.
