Program Manager for womenshealth.gov and girlshealth.gov

Ann Abercrombie is the program manager for womenshealth.gov and its toll free information and referral center, as well as girlshealth.gov. In this capacity, she is responsible for managing design and content enhancements to both websites. Ms. Abercrombie also oversees the online fulfillment of hundreds of requests for the Office's print materials on women's and girls' health. She works closely with the director of the Division of Outreach and Collaboration on the projects' budget, schedules, personnel, print materials, and evaluation.

Ms. Abercrombie retains her responsibilities as the Office's outreach librarian, a role she has held since joining the Office on Women's Health (OWH) in June 1998. In this capacity, she has developed and managed a women's health resource library and data access system to facilitate research. She maintains an inventory of health and medical journals as well as federal publications on women's health topics.

She was also the manager of the OWH Exhibits Program. In addition to determining the exhibit schedule, she attended conferences across the country to promote womenshealth.gov, the work of OWH, and the activities of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Ms. Abercrombie has a master's degree in library service from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey and a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
