An executive with extensive marketing experience in health care and other industries has been recruited as a new board member for nonprofit St. Petersburg Free Clinic.
Tamara Meyer, executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary at Catalina Marketing, serves as a strategic advisor for the company and oversees business development.
She joins the 21-member board along with fellow 2016 appointees Marylou Bourdow, Barbara Baccari and Kimberly Jackson, who oversee strategy, fundraising and promotions for the Free Clinic during their three-year terms.
Before Meyer joined Catalina last year, she was senior vice president and chief litigation counsel for a Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance plan administrator, Health Care Service Corp., which is active in five states across the Southwest.
“Tamara’s extensive legal and health care expertise will be extremely valuable in helping advance the Free Clinic’s mission of serving our neighbors in need,” Beth Houghton, executive director at St. Petersburg Free Clinic, said.
Founded in 1970, the Free Clinic provides food, shelter and health care for “families and individuals who fall through the cracks of existing systems and services,” according to a news release.
