CHENANGO COUNTY – The Madison County Rural Health Council Board of Directors has selected Christine Paul as its new executive director thanks in part to her experience working for Chenango County nonprofits, and one of her goals is to work with Chenango County to help make the area better for everyone.
According to representatives of the Madison County Rural Health Council, Paul has a background as Deputy Director of Chenango Health Network in Chenango County. Representatives said Paul started her leadership role in Madison County on August 23, after serving 13 years with the Chenango Health Network.
“I had strong collaborations with Chenango County agencies and look forward to our continued work together as I work in my new role,” said Paul. “I have been getting to know the Madison County Rural Health Council staff and board members, and I am excited for this opportunity and I look forward to building continued collaborations within Madison County.”
“I am very impressed with how Madison County’s leaders come together to get things done and I am eager to be a part of that.”
When asked about her qualifications, Paul said her experience in non-profit administration along with her extensive work designing and implementing programs that focus on social determinants of health will help guide her as she leads the Madison County Rural Health Council into its next chapter.
“My goal is to grow the council programmatically and provide more direct service for the individuals and families of Madison County,” she said. “The mission of the rural health council is to advocate, inform, and coordinate efforts to improve health in our community.”
“I’m excited to be able to make a difference in both Chenango and Madison County, and I hope my experience in the Chenango Health Network helps me do that.”
