Joanie Block
Founder and Executive Director
Prior to forming KIMSeattle, Joanie served as the Chief Operating Officer of Seattle Science Foundation for close to 10 years. As one of the founding members of SSF, Joanie played a crucial role in building partnerships between physicians and industry to develop and create a strong medical education program. Her commitment to medical education led her to collaborate with local schools, educators, and medical professionals to create Kids In Medicine (KIM) in 2008. The focus on STEM for K-12 students led to exponential growth of the program, and ultimately the decision to form a new non profit specifically designed to meet this need. Joanie holds a Masters Degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Exercise Physiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation, and a Bachelor of Science degree from Ithaca College in Clinical Exercise Science.
