MEET LYNN PHAN,
our new Advocacy manager for
Maryland and the District of Columbia.
My name is Lynn Phan and I am the new Advocacy manager for Maryland and the District of Columbia. I was born in Washington, DC and spent the majority of my childhood in Prince George’s county. I graduated from University of Maryland, Baltimore County with a degree in Social Work and a minor in Psychology.
In my most recent employment, I served Howard County Health Department as the Regional PrEP (Pre- exposure prophylaxis: a preventative measure for HIV/AIDs) Navigator. In my previous role, I discovered that I was interested in public policy and engaging in a major public health issue.
In 2006, my father was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s and that became a significant event in my life. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2011. I understand the hardships, the troubles, and the forced life-changing dynamics that this disease creates in one's life. The Alzheimer’s Association provided resources that have helped me in the past. My desire is to help the organization move towards their vision: a world without Alzheimer’s disease. It is more than a job to me; it is a passion.
I am extremely excited to start meeting Maryland and the District of Columbia advocates and ambassadors. Let’s work together to bring awareness to Alzheimer’s disease and get all our elected officials on board! Learn more about our advocacy priorities.
