Eliza’s ‘Walk the Talk’ wellness team recently kicked off its ongoing partnership and sponsorship with Special Olympics Massachusetts for 2018. During the standing-room-only launch event, Eliza employees heard about Special Olympics’ mission from its regional representatives and from inspiring keynote speaker/athlete Melissa Reilly.
Jane Poirier is a Senior Technical Writer at Eliza, an HMS company. Jane has spent the past 10+ years lending her skills to Eliza's health engagement analytics team and has worked in the technology field for many years.
She has a personal interest in acting as Eliza’s liaison with Special Olympics MA because her oldest sister Maryann has Autism. She knows first-hand of the challenges facing people with intellectual disabilities and their families for rights, education and acceptance. Jane and her family grew up participating in the early years of Special Olympics at various special needs events. She is a long-time admirer of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the founder of Special Olympics.
