New Orleans-based health agency AAAneurysm Outreach has announced the appointment of J B Hunt as Executive Director, according to Board Chair Barbara Guerard. Mrs. Hunt formerly worked in management, fundraising, disaster response and board development with American Red Cross.
"We look forward to continuing to expand our outreach and education programs for abdominal aortic aneurysms across the country,” Ms. Guerard said. She joins founder Sheila Arrington, of Prairieville.
Formerly a CPR and First Aid instructor, Mrs. Hunt is also currently an instructor trainer for disaster volunteers. Prior to her Red Cross tenure, Mrs. Hunt worked in fundraising, public relations and volunteer management with Junior Achievement, Campfire Girls and Boys, public radio and others and has been a volunteer board member with Leadership Monroe (Florida) and served on other state and national work teams. Her BS degree is in journalism, and she is a former reporter with the Tulsa World and the Claremore Daily Progress (Oklahoma).
About AAAneurysm Outreach
Founded in 1999 in Prairieville, Louisiana, AAAneurysm Outreach is the only non-profit that provides education, free health screenings and awareness of abdominal aortic aneurysms, and provides comprehensive outreach for at-risk individuals –-typically smokers, men and women over the age of 60, those with hypertension and people with a family history of the condition.
