Volunteers in Medicine announced today that Mary Ferdon has been hired as Executive Director of Volunteers in Medicine.
Ferdon, who has a Bachelor's degree in political science and a Master's degree in public administration, most recently was the Community Development Director for the City of Columbus.
Ferdon replaces Keith Weedman, who has run the nonprofit health clinic on Jackson Street for nearly seven years.
“I'm really ecstatic and honored to be selected,” Ferdon said Friday. “It’s a very well-respected organization in the community that provides such a needed service.” Ferdon said one of her major projects will be to understand the federal Affordable Care Act and how it will impact VIM.
