How to Make Your News Digest More Streamlined and Actionable (and have fun while doing it)

Wednesday, April 5, 2023

1PM- 2PM  (ET)




The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) prospect research team provides a daily news digest of articles on prospects, donors, and faculty. After identifying a need to refresh the digest, research team members collaborated on making it more consistent, actionable, and relevant to the Division of Philanthropy as well as easier to compile on a daily basis. Join three members of the DFCI research team as they discuss their internal news process and the recent changes and improvements to the digest. Attendees will gain insight into how DFCI compiles and formats the news to be the most helpful for gift officers, and will take away inspiration for their own teams.


Christina Priplata has been a Senior Corporate Analyst at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since 2019 and her role is focused on corporate and foundation research. Previously, she was a grant writer at Jewish Family & Children’s Service in Waltham, MA. She has a BS in Allied Health Science from the University of Connecticut and enjoys skiing and traveling.

Ryan Frank has been a Senior Research Analyst at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since 2020. Prior to joining the DFCI research team, he worked at Brandeis University in both Prospect Research and Annual Giving. Before joining the non-profit world, Ryan had a career in banking and insurance. He received a BS in Finance from the University of Delaware. When he’s not busy researching prospects, Ryan enjoys running and playing board games with friends.

Lauren Casas is Senior Research Analyst II at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where she has worked since 2018. A Wellesley College graduate, she was previously a Research Associate at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Lauren serves on NEDRA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
