Continuing a partnership that began in 2001, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) awarded Akoya a new contract for the next five and a half years. Our work for HRSA comprises communications and outreach for the Workplace Partnership for Life, a program recruiting and engaging workplaces across the nation to help increase the number of people registered as organ, eye, and tissue donors. We’ve designed, branded, and implemented campaigns that have resulted in more than 1.1 million people registering on their state donor registries. We value our longstanding partnership with HRSA and are excited to continue this important work.
We’re thrilled to announce that Lisa Griffin joined our team as Strategic Planner/Consultant on August 29th, following a 26-year career leading high-performing teams for the U.S. Army, Joint Staff, and Department of Defense. Lisa will support Akoya’s communications contract with the Defense Health Agency and contribute to Akoya’s talent management and strategic planning efforts. Lisa is certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), Human Capital Strategist (HCS), Project Management Professional (PMP) and holds master’s degrees from Georgetown University and National Defense University. She will serve in Akoya’s DC office.
