PIC Welcomes New Deputy Director!

Annalisa Ekbladh has been named Deputy Director of Parent Information Center of Delaware.

Annalisa Ekbladh brings a wealth of experience in the field of program management and family services to PIC. She is a passionate advocate for families and individuals with disabilities and has worked extensively with children and families in both the public sector and the nonprofit community. For more than a decade, Ekbladh has lead initiatives aimed on improving family services in Delaware. She has a specific interest and expertise in disability and its impact on family function and dynamics. She has successfully managed a variety of initiatives, collaborated with internal and external partners, and developed family-focused programming and research. In addition. Ekbladh has worked extensively with programs funded through the state and federal Health Resources and Services Administration. “Two of Annalisa’s former roles—as the Center for Disabilities Studies’ program manager and Autism Delaware’s director of Policy and Family Services —demanded skills and knowledge that are ideally matched for the work PIC does today as well as the work to be done in the future,” notes Parent Information Center executive director Meedra Surratte. “Over the past decade,” adds Ekbladh, “I have had the opportunity to work together with PIC and Delaware Family Voices on many different levels. My introduction to both agencies began as a parent of two children with special health care needs. “I have a profound respect for the missions of both agencies,” continues Ekbladh, “and am thrilled to be a part of this historic merger. I look forward to continuing to work with our amazing Delaware families as we expand our programs and services.“
