Since joining the team in 2008, Jeff has had the opportunity to lead the evaluation of a wide range of projects including the State Opioid Response grant, Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success grant, Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, and State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup. He has also led and supported evaluations for local nonprofit organizations, state funded initiatives, and federally funded programs.
Jeff is passionate about supporting programs that aim to improve the lives of individuals and their communities, and is especially interested in programs that address the social determinants of health.
