Myocarditis Foundation Welcomes New Board Member

The Myocarditis Foundation would like to welcome and introduce Stephanie Kennan as the latest member of the Myocarditis Board of Directors!

Stephanie Kennan is the Senior Vice President of Federal Affairs, at McGuireWoods Consulting.

Ms. Kennan has worked in the health policy arena for over two decades.  Her experience includes working for two members of the U.S. House of Representatives and for U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Or).  She also served as Director of Federal Relations for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene; as Assistant Director of Government Affairs for the American College of Emergency Physicians; and as a legislative representative for AARP. She also has authored numerous articles concerning health policy and is quoted often in the health care press on current events. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia and earned her MBA from George Washington University and an MA in Creative Writing from Johns Hopkins University.

Her father died at the age of 42 from Myocarditis. Her interest in joining the foundation comes from understanding how important it is to support patients and their families, and to advance the scientific research needed to find treatments and a cure.

Please join us in welcoming Stephanie to our Myocarditis Foundation Family and Board of Directors. We know that her breath of experience and understanding of healthcare will provide additional leadership in moving our mission forward!
