Columbus Area Professionals Join the
Fight Against Alzheimer’s

Four Central Ohio Professionals Appointed to the Association’s Board

The Alzheimer’s Association Central Ohio Chapter has announced the appointment of four new board members to serve on its board of directors. The board members will serve one term each, and will be tapped for their passion, expertise and ability to encourage others to get involved in making a difference to patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia in Central Ohio and the 14 regions served by the chapter, and their caregivers. The new board members include Sue Reninger of RMD Advertising, Scott McKim of Nationwide Bank, Chris Joos of Plante Moran and Scott Claunch of Cardinal Health. In addition to the board members, two team members have been added to the team’s staff of qualified healthcare professionals.

Sue Reninger is a Managing Partner of Client Brand Strategy at RMD Advertising. Reninger brings more than two decades of marketing expertise and a number of board appointments to her work on the Alzheimer’s board. “All of our professional success means nothing if we can not give to those in need. For me, Alzheimer’s is a personal mission. We may not be able to cure Alzheimer’s, but we can use our talents to raise awareness and the much needed funds for research and support services,” shares Reninger.

Scott McKim is an Associate Vice President & Lending Product Manager for Nationwide Bank. McKim’s purpose is rooted in assistance and caregiver support. “My purpose is to provide assistance and relief to the caregivers who are ultimately impacted by Alzheimer’s, so they may better cope with the terrible impact of this disease and what it does to their friend or family member,” offers McKim. 

Chris Joos, a CPA Partner at Plante Moran in Columbus, specializes in the Healthcare sector. “I want to use my 25 years of experience in the Senior Care Industry to help further the goals and mission of the Alzheimer’s Association in serving my community’s families impacted by a dementia disease,” shares Joos.

Finally, Scott Claunch, RPh, BCNP, is a Vice President of Nuclear Pharmacy Services at Cardinal Health. “In my work everything you do has a real, meaningful impact on a human life. That’s what I want to do for everyone connected to Alzheimer’s, I want to make a meaningful difference in their lives,” offers Claunch.
