You may have noticed that in the past few months, two new “Katie’s” have come on board at the Research Institute, and they happen to work together!
I want to take this opportunity to set the record straight and clear up the “Katie confusion.”
Katie Carlin (Katie C)- Director of Research Development, Planning and Communications. Katie C leads the team, which includes Michele Lee Clements, research planning; Rachel Shaperow, research writer-editor; and Katie Kuehn, communications and marketing. Katie C is responsible for developing and enhancing MedStar's research infrastructure, fostering system-wide collaborations among investigators, developing partnerships with external third party organizations, and creating strategic plans to help enhance MedStar's diverse and robust research programs.
Katie Kuehn (Katie K or Katie Squared)- Communications and Marketing Manager. Katie K is a part of the Research Development, Planning and Communications team that Katie C oversees. Katie K is responsible for all marketing and communications for the Research Institute—internal/associate communications (such as the monthly eNewsletter FOCUS), marketing, advertising, media relations, social media (like setting up and monitoring this blog), StarPort and the website.
Still confused? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Luckily, you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be able to reach both Katie’s.
