BCI Board of Directors Welcomes Two New Members

Brandywine Counseling welcomed two new members to our Board of Directors March 16, 2010.

Lauren Pearce of Milton is a Constituent Relations Liaison for Governor Jack Markell. She has been an active volunteer with BCI's Lighthouse Program for the past year, participating in many special activities with the women and children. Currently, she is doing a clothing/toiletry drive in the Governor’s office for residents. “I love working with the Lighthouse and wish I could do more with them,” says Lauren. “I've been working with [counselor] Kelly Enfield, who is wonderful, and I'm attempting to paint their Recovery Room in the Pentecostal church across the street. In May, we planted flowers with the women and children, and I hope to do that again this coming spring.” Lauren joined our board to become more involved with the organization, utilize her public relations experience, and continue pursuing her passion for helping those affected by addiction and HIV/AIDS.

Dr. Harold Rosen, MD, of Wayne, Pennsylvania is Chair of the Department of Psychiatry for Christiana Care Health System. Dr. Rosen has been a valued partner and resource to BCI in recent years as we have expanded our co-occurring disorders services. He has enabled us to strengthen our collaboration with Delaware’s major hospital to benefit the population we mutually serve. In addition, he brings his ideas on a wide range of topics, ranging from board development and vision, to demonstrating the outcomes and cost-effectiveness of BCI’s work, to working toward improvements in the overall health systems in our state.

The BCI Board is comprised of volunteers who support the mission of Brandywine Counseling by serving as our “eyes and ears” in the community, and sharing their time, advice, and expertise. We are glad to welcome our two new additions. Please join us in giving them a warm welcome to BCI!
