A gathering for creative, smart communications
May 3-4, 2018
Public Relations Director
Ms. Jill B. Roark is a public-health promoting, iDevice-toting, social change-striving, and modern cuisine-loving mom to a super fabulous 9-year-old boy, whose diagnosis of autism has been simultaneously the most challenging AND rewarding gift of parenting. Child-whisperer, food-blog-reader, and world-problem-solver by night, Jill spends her days at the American Cancer Society as a director of public relations, helping to tell the story of the Society’s cancer prevention and control programs. Of her 20-plus years in public health, Jill spent the previous eight years leading HPV vaccine communications for the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. Jill received a trifecta of degrees in Art, Zoology, and Public Health at the University of Florida, where it’s hard to be humble when you’re a Gator!
