Newman Carpenter designs creative tools and strategies to improve health. Our agency was founded by two public health practitioners, Emily Newman, MPH and Kathryn Carpenter, MPH, MA. Prior to public health, the founders came from careers in education, TV production, design, and linguistics.
Newman Carpenter envisions a better way of communicating health information to improve health equity by helping people access and use information and resources to live healthier lives.
Newman Carpenter recognizes racism as a public health problem that affects all levels of health and systems. In any approach we take, we aim to reduce health disparities caused by racism and related factors. We are committed to furthering racial and health equity in all aspects of our business, client work, community, and personal lives.
