National Chief Advancement Officer
Stacy Langa joined the Concussion Legacy Foundation team as the National Chief Advancement Officer in May 2019. After graduating from Vassar College in 1985 with a degree in Bio-Psychology (now Neuroscience), her diversified career has spanned the corporate communications and academic advancement fields at Langa Communications Corp, Vassar College and Kent School respectively. Her areas of expertise include specialized patient education, high level corporate executive and product announcements and internal communications networks, unique special events management, and high performance strategic fundraising.
A keen interest in emergency medicine lead Stacy to pursue an EMT Certification at age 19 and later to achieve Senior Level Alpine Patroller status with the National Ski Patrol, for which she has volunteered the last 14 years. On her home mountain, Catamount Ski Resort, she is one of only six female patrollers amongst a squad of 65, and was honored to be named Patroller of the Year in 2014. As a Certified Outdoor Emergency Trainer, she travels the Northeast instructing fellow patrollers on the latest emergency management techniques and protocols, with particular focus on the treatment of suspected traumatic brain injuries, as well as those to the neck and spine.
Stacy recently relocated to the Boston area after living the last 35 years in the Hudson Valley region. She is the proud mother of two daughters who are also focused on finding solutions to our global public health issues and delivering excellence in medical care to the youngest segment of our population. Her eldest, a 2018 graduate of Bucknell University, currently works as a researcher in the Pediatric Plastic Surgery division of Boston Children's Hospital, and will apply to medical school for pediatric medicine this summer. Her youngest is a rising sophomore at Bucknell with sights on an impactful career in public health.
Stacy is passionate about tackling critically important health and medical issues; i.e. ensuring doctors properly diagnose and treat concussions for all age groups and especially for our youngest during their formative brain development years, implementing policies that support equal access to medical care, global CTE research, and providing resources to proven Post-Concussion Syndrome treatments, to name just a few.
