Grden will be responsible for the operations of the Institute and will continue to oversee the Company's branding and eHealth strategies. She has a master's degree in Business Administration from the University of South Carolina, a master's of Urban and Regional Planning from the University of North Carolina, a bachelor's degree in economics from Bucknell University, and is a graduate of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at the University of Delaware.
