ON-Lion Letter
In October, the National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) in Germantown, Md., named Christopher A. Brown its new president.  Brown, who has been with NFI since 2000, including as its executive vice president since 2010.

He has been responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of NFI's programming, training, curricula, and workshops, and has overseen NFI's finances.  He has also played a critical role in shaping NFI's focus as the leading provider of fatherhood skill-building resources in the country and the leading trainer of practitioners seeking to offer fatherhood programs in their communities.

In his long tenure at NFI, Brown has been the organization's foremost developer of its world-class fatherhood programs.  He has authored flagship NFI programs, such as the 24/7 Dad® and InsideOut Dad® curricula, and many workshops, brochures, pocket guides, and other skill-building materials.

An applied anthropologist and author of several journal articles and book chapters on issues related to child health and well-being, Brown has studied masculinity cross-culturally, especially as it applies to fatherhood and men's health and well-being.  He served as a social-marketing specialist and health-communications consultant with the Texas Department of State Health Services before joining NFI.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports NFI.
