Kate believes that social networks and games can transform people into eager consumers and contributors of public health information. She is a Product Manager at E-Line Media where she is leading the development and expansion of Real Robots of Robot High, a video game that helps middle school students understand social systems and stand up to bullying, dating violence and digital abuse. Before coming to E-Line, Kate directed Start Strong Rhode Island, part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s 18-million dollar investment to curb the nationwide epidemic of teen dating violence. There, Kate developed hkupwithrespect.com, an online application that helps teens talk about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. Kate has a Masters degree in Epidemiology from the Boston University School of Public Health.
