Alisa Craig, MS
What organization do you represent on the FRCA board and what is your job there?
I represent Hurley Medical Center – I am an Administrator. I oversee all of our Wellness and Population Health initiatives for our own employees, our patients, and community at-large.
How long have you been a board member with the FRCA? What prompted you to want to join the board?
I subbed for a few months when another Hurley employee was on maternity leave in 2014 and then became a permanent board the summer of 2015.
What is your favorite program or project the FRCA has been involved with or is currently helping out with in Flint?
I have loved being involved with the yearly Flotilla. It really is wonderful seeing so many people enjoy the recreational aspects of the Flint River. I am excited to now be on the sub-group working on Chevy Commons programming. I think our Hurley employees will take advantage of this – whether it be for walking, running, biking ,etc.
What would you like people to know about the FRCA?
The FRCA is a very passionate group from very diverse organizations who come together because we share the same vision for the Flint River and surrounding areas.
Share a memory of the Flint River or tell us what is your favorite part about the river.
Volunteering at the Flint River Flotilla the past two years – – hearing so many people say how much they enjoyed their float and hearing how beautiful they thought the river was really was great! Plus – talking with local people who came out to watch the Flotilla (mostly Mott Park neighbors) – -they really were proud of the event!
