Board welcomes attorney Chelsea Dellavella
January 2022 … Healthy NewsWorks is pleased to welcome attorney Chelsea Dellavella to its board as an observer for the next year.
Chelsea recently accepted a new position as a conflicts attorney at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP in Philadelphia; she currently is an associate attorney on the medical malpractice team at Burns White LLC in Conshohocken. She comes to Healthy NewsWorks through the Board Observer Program, a partnership between the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, the Delivery of Legal Services Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association, and the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
The program offers young lawyers the opportunity to serve on the board of a local nonprofit organization for a year, fostering connections with the community and benefiting both the observer and the participating organization. Naina Kamath served as an observer through the program during 2021.
“I have always been passionate about children and the health industry,” Chelsea said. “I remember being in grade school and having such a great lack of knowledge in not only health, but also an ability to write about current events in the health community. Healthy NewsWorks not only teaches children, but provides them with the confidence to pass along the information to others.”
Chelsea previously worked for and on behalf of children at Philadelphia Family Court and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
“During my time with Healthy NewsWorks, I hope to help the organization gain exposure in both Philadelphia and in other areas of the country, as well as create new opportunities for fund-raising and event planning,” she said.
Chelsea earned her law degree from Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law in Philadelphia in 2019.
