CINCH Welcomes New Assistant Director

Please welcome Taegen McGowan who began her position as Assistant Director of CINCH on August 20th. We’ve been so busy that we haven’t had a chance to get a proper introduction out to the community. Many of you have had an opportunity to meet Taegen on one of our many work group meetings this month. She has also helped out with a variety of tasks and projects over the last several months.

Taegen just completed her Master of Public Health degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. Taegen has an extensive background in healthcare; primarily focused in Dermatology. She spent many years as surgical assistant and brings with her a good deal of insight on sun safety and skin cancer education. We had the opportunity to know Taegen as a student through her Masters Practicum which focused on identifying factors and barriers affecting sustained enrollment of the FAMIS programs. She recognizes the need for increased patient education and advocacy among all health topics. She believes that preventing illness and injury through education and advocacy should be a priority. She looks forward to a long and rewarding career improving the health and wellness of our children in Hampton Roads.

Please take a moment to welcome Taegen to the CINCH family. She can be reached at 668-6495 or
