Lisa A. Gilmore specializes in developing, implementing, and evaluating behavioral, social change, and health communication strategies to improve health and manage chronic disease. Currently, at the Cadmus Group, Inc., she provides project management, communications, and subject matter expertise for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other clients on asthma, indoor air quality, healthy housing, childhood obesity, and sustainable financing. Previously at Circle Solutions, Inc., Ms. Gilmore served as the Project Director for a large contract with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) that supported three Information Clearinghouses, two Information Services, and two national health awareness campaigns. From 2009-2013, she was the Technical Advisor for Chronic Disease and Prevention at FHI 360, where she accelerated the development and implementation of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program's National Asthma Control Initiative (NACI) under a contract with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. For the NACI, she oversaw and provided technical assistance to 28 quality improvement projects that engaged more than 50,000 health providers; won plain language awards for the NHLBI's Asthma & Physical Activity in the School and the NACI Action Guide, Plan of Action, and e-newsletter; generated millions of impressions via the Tom Joyner Morning Show, BlackAmericaWeb.com, and other social media; and engaged stakeholders through publications, presentations, and highly rated webinars.

Formerly, as the Executive Director of the National Capital Asthma Coalition, Ms. Gilmore developed, implemented, and managed health care, communications, fundraising, advocacy, and research strategies that engaged diverse sectors in collaborative heath promotion and disease management efforts. After joining NCAC in May 2002, she guided its transformation into a nonprofit organization that served as a major resource for asthma education and a model for institutional collaboration. While tripling NCACís membership, she facilitated the joint planning and implementation of policies, family education programs, and multidisciplinary case management teams across hospitals, managed care organizations, health centers, pharmacies, schools, child care providers, and public health and social service agencies. She also recruited more than 250 clinicians who completed NCACís Physician Asthma Care Education Seminar and trained 230 school, child care, and recreation center administrators and staff on Managing Asthma and Allergies in DC Schools.

Before joining NCAC, Ms. Gilmore served with the National Center for Tobacco-Free Kids as Director of Partnerships and Development and with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where she was recognized for her leadership on award-winning initiatives on organ donation, fatherhood, physical activity, teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, and health disparities.

Ms. Gilmore continues to serve on federal, state, hospital, and university advisory boards on asthma and other chronic diseases, including the FDA's Anesthesiology and Respiratory Therapy Devices Panel (consumer representative) and the advisory boards of The Healthy House Institute, The Housekeeping Channel, and The Healthy Facilities Institute. She holds a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Social Work from Boston College and a bachelorís degree in Applied Math and Economics from Brown University.
