Coleman Named Associate Vice President, Programs And Services

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter has promoted Lynette J. Coleman from chapter programs director to associate vice president of programs and services. In her new role she will oversee the Connecticut Chapter’s programs and services across the state.

“Ms. Coleman excelled in her former position,” said Lisa Gerrol, Connecticut Chapter president and chief professional officer. “Her promotion reflects her dedication and determination to provide vital programs and services to those in our state battling multiple sclerosis.”

Coleman, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., now lives in Middletown, Conn. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Bachelor of Arts degree in African-American Studies from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., in 1998.

Coleman first joined the Connecticut Chapter -- based in Hartford, Conn. -- in 1999 as chapter programs coordinator, and served in that capacity until 2004. She was promoted to assistant chapter programs director in 2005, then chapter programs director in May 2007.

Coleman and her department have received numerous awards and citations from the National MS Society for the quality of programs available to clients. Four times the chapter has earned top honor in the national organization: the Cavallo Award; the chapter has been at least a finalist for this award every year since it was established in 2002.

 “I will continue to work to improve on our ability to help serve the needs of Connecticut residents living with MS,” said Coleman. “We want to ensure they have access to quality healthcare options and resources that provide swift, tailored responses to their specialized needs.”
