Caroline joined the CRI team in February 2018 as associate director of patient engagement. She develops marketing and communications strategies to build CRI’s community of patients and caregivers. Her responsibilities include organizing the CRI Immunotherapy Patient Summit series, producing patient videos and written narratives, and creating educational material related to cancer immunotherapy.
Prior to joining CRI, Caroline produced, directed, and edited healthcare communications videos for hospitals and nonprofits. Drawing on a year of postgraduate medical education and M.Sc. courses at Columbia University’s Program in Narrative Medicine, she translated scientific content into educational materials for a lay audience. In the course of this work, she conducted hundreds of interviews with patients, advocates, scientists, providers, and thought leaders in medicine and the humanities. Caroline’s work appears on websites and social media channels of medical centers and nonprofits, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Mount Sinai Hospital, and Medscape. This includes patient education materials (informed consent or decision making aids), broadcast media (PSAs and ad campaigns), and documentary films.
Caroline Offit graduated from Wesleyan University with a B.A. in Film Studies, and is currently completing a M.Sc. in Columbia University’s Narrative Medicine Program.
