Ms. Savage leads Westat’s Health Communications Group where she and her team develop and implement award-winning, research-driven Federal social marketing campaigns and health education programs that increase knowledge, inform attitudes, and change health behaviors.

“In Terry, we have found a leader with deep and rich experience in research-driven health communications and social marketing efforts that have made a difference in the lives of millions of Americans.
