Leslie Constans

Director, Digital and Brand Communications
"Throughout my career, I have helped organizations build their reputation as good corporate citizens or valued community partners through stories of impact – in the community, on people and families and on the environment. The Foundation’s mission to improve the experience of people and families living with serious illness speaks to me personally, having cared for and lost my mother in 2009 to lung cancer, and I am inspired by the work our Foundation partners are doing to change the way people and families experience health care."
