Claire Trindle
Claire joined Independence Blue Cross Foundation (Foundation) as a program specialist in 2016 and manages the Addressing Health Priorities initiative, one of the four grant programs which operate out of the Foundation. Her prior work experience includes being a program coordinator for a federally funded grant program based around reducing substance abuse amongst South Philadelphia youth.

She is an active volunteer at Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society as well as a member of American Public Health Association, Amnesty International USA, Philabundance, and numerous Temple University Alumni Association groups.
