A Frederick, Md., woman who formerly worked with Komen Race for the Cure has accepted the executive director position at Community Free Clinic in Hagerstown.

Christina L. Rudden comes to the position from her most recent stint as public relations/physician liaison with Open MRI of Frederick, according to Charles McGinley, president of the clinic's board of directors. She begins her new duties Tuesday.

Rudden spent several years in the information technology sector in the Frederick/Washington, D.C. area, and her resume includes work with the Susan G. Komen cancer organization, the AIDS Walk, Hoops for Hope and the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity.

Rudden is a performing member and marketing director of the Frederick Orchestra. She and her husband, Brian, plan to move to Middletown, Md.

"I feel privileged and honored to be asked to work for the citizens of Washington County," Rudden said. "I look forward to meeting and working with all the local organizations in the area."

Founded by Dr. Martin W. Gallagher in 1990, Community Free Clinic is now at 18 W. Franklin St. It provides health care to medically uninsured patients at the rate of about 10,000 patient visits a year.
