Kate Schroder joined Interact for Health as its fourth President and CEO in January 2022. In this role, she works with Interact for Health’s staff and board to provide leadership, direction and vision to the organization and to develop strategies to address some of the most pressing health needs in Greater Cincinnati. She oversees a staff of 21 and annual investments of more than $7 million to support the community via grantmaking, community research and evaluation, and education. Working with Interact for Health’s Board, Kate also helps to manage the foundation’s charitable endowment of more than $250 million.
A native of Cincinnati, Kate has experience leading health initiatives locally and internationally. Most recently, she oversaw a regional collaborative effort to increase COVID-19 vaccination throughout 14 counties in Greater Cincinnati and to address disparities in vaccination rates while working at The Health Collaborative. In late 2021, she also oversaw strategic planning duties for The Health Collaborative, engaging its board, regional health leaders and other key stakeholders.
In 2011, Kate was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, an experience that she says helps to fuel her passion for improving health care—knowing firsthand what it feels like when one’s survival is dependent on access to treatment. She remains active in patient advocacy and helps to support research through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
