“As the coalition coach of our emerging multi-agency work group, Mary Jo Greil provided us with a deeper understanding of our validity, purpose and power. Her encouragement and counsel supported our forward momentum as we planned and developed an early childhood obesity prevention campaign. When we found ourselves in uncharted waters, she offered insightful questions or exercises to guide members’ thought processes towards the best strategic path and a common ground.” Cathy Marcinko, Grant Development Coordinator at Le Bonheur Community Health and Well-Being.
