Global HealthShare Initiative - UC Davis | I wrote a communication strategy for multi-modal channels and outreach options to help GHS share their vision, find new members and partners, and show the world their contribution to health reform:

"Dena has proven herself to be self-motivated, eager to apply herself to the causes she is passionate about... she has shown a continued dedication as a volunteer of the GHS team... Her project at GHS was to prepare a communication strategy for multiple channels and outreach and she did an excellent job to articulate that in written format... Dena has established herself as an independent thinker, I read some of the narrative she authored and it looks impressive. Her ability to understand and assess complex issues in public health, with a focus on addressing health disparities, demonstrates her intellectual strength and ongoing awareness of current developments in the field. All of these attributes are indicative of her sustained interest in communications and public health at the global level..." ~ The Director and Managing Director, The NCMHD Center of Excellence for Nutritional Genomics & GHS Members

Citizens to Re-elect a Municipal Councilmember | I provided event photography and support, and consulted this group on communication strategy, event planning, social media, speech editing, web content writing, inquiry protocols, and shared interests in leadership and public health for this political re-election campaign. The councilmember won with 71.24% votes and represented until the term ended in 2010:

"I felt encouraged by our shared passion to improve health outcomes and quality of life in part through engaging diverse and underrepresented groups in the civic process. I recognize Dena as a unique individual who is passionate about effectively and creatively utilizing multi-modes of communication to deliver best outcomes to those who employ her services." ~ Municipal Councilmember, Position #4

The Franciscan Place at St. Joseph Family Center | I designed a blog community profile to support SJFC's mission to serve people via the healing arts. Dena Rosko also produced a video with interviews and photographs, and photographed SJFC for their marketing purposes:

"Dena enthusiastically created a video for The Franciscan Place at St. Joseph Family Center. Her photography captured the beauty and serenity we wanted to convey without any pointers from us. She is a collaborator, creative, has an eye for beauty and is willing to share her talents. Her work will be utilized in a variety of ways to market our center." ~ Sr. Celeste Crine, OSF, Coordinator of Spirituality & Healing Arts

Vision House | I conducted a communication audit report of internal and external communication via participant-observation, interviews, a survey questionnaire, and artifact observation to support VH's vision, mission, core values, and team design, and photographed VH (here and here) for their marketing purposes:

"Dena has a good grasp of sorting through what is being said to get to the heart of the issue identifying emerging themes. She is very thorough in her investigation, has excellent follow through, and is very respectful of an organization's needs and limitations." ~ The then Human Resources and Office Manager

Renton Public Library [now KCLS Renton Library] } I photographed RPL for their marketing use:
