“The American Lung Association of the Northeast is honored to have Jon Rosen serve as Chair-Elect of the Northeast Board of Directors,” said Jeff Seyler, President & CEO of the American Lung Association of the Northeast. “Jon has been an important part of the American Lung Association for more than three decades and his passion and enthusiasm for the Lung Association’s mission never falters. We are certain that Jon will excel in this new role.”
Rosen first became a volunteer leader of the American Lung Association 32 years ago in Hudson Valley, New York, where he served as president of the board for four terms. He subsequently served on the board of the American Lung Association in New York. Having lost his father to emphysema, Rosen is all too familiar with the toll that lung disease can take on both the afflicted and their loved ones.
Rosen was a charter member of the Lung Association’s National Marketing Communications Task Force and has played a leading role in marketing, media relations, fundraising and finance at the national and local levels. He served on the Lung Association’s National Assembly and the National Board of Directors, where he is currently completing his second term and chairs the Marketing Communications Work Team.
“I am honored and humbled by my appointment and look forward to working with an extraordinary Northeast team to fulfill our mission of saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease,” said Rosen.
Rosen will work regionally with the Northeast Board of Directors to ensure that the Lung Association’s research, education and advocacy efforts cover all lung diseases including asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis and lung cancer.
Prior to founding Impact
Communications, Rosen was an award-winning television news journalist at
WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, WABC-TV in New York and “Good Morning America.” He is
an honors graduate of New York University.
