McLean welcomes two new faces to board of trustees

Excerpted from McLean News December 12, 2008 edition

Jeanne Blake and John Brennan, both luminaries in business, recently joined the McLean Hospital Board of Trustees.

Blake is president of Blake Works Inc. and Family Health Productions, and creator of Words Can Work®, evidence-based multimedia about the public health challenges children face growing up. She provides consulting services in the field of parent/child communication and speaks nationally to parents and to work/life and health-care professionals.

A former journalist, Blake has earned the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Journalism Award, has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show and CNN. Additionally, she has been featured on National Public Radio and Bloomberg Radio. She is an affiliated faculty member with the Division on Addictions at Harvard Medical School, is a member of the American Psychological Association’s Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls and serves as the volunteer president of The Perfect Storm Foundation, an organization providing educational and cultural opportunities to young people whose parents make their living in the commercial fishing industry.

Scott Rauch, MD, president and psychiatrist in chief, expressed his gratitude, and that of the McLean community, to Blake and Brennan in welcoming them to the board. “We are thrilled to have Jeanne and John as new members of the McLean community. They both bring substantial knowledge and experience in fields that are of direct relevance to McLean's goals."
