Elizabeth Creed, M.Sc., Project Manager, K-CoRD
Liz joined K-CoRD (Kinsale Community Response to Dementia) as Project Manager in September 2012. An experienced research scientist and project manager she worked with Elan Biotechnology Research for seven years. Liz subsequently was Project Manager for the WITS ‘Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET)’ database initiative to bring women in SET into decision making.
As Secretary of Transition Town Kinsale, an internationally recognised local sustainability initiative, Liz initiated and coordinated community projects across the food, energy and transport sectors as well as many community events. Liz’s interest in primary health care and community development along with her background in research and project management led her to this role with K-CoRD, whose vision is to enable those with dementia to live at home, active in their communities by engaging all in the community: the person with dementia; their family members; health care professionals; business and community groups and all who would like to take an active part in making this happen.
