Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been a graduate assistant on a collaborative community substance abuse prevention project with a rural Alaskan community for the past year. I have completed interim products to assist the evaluation process, made several site visits to the community, and taken an active lead in collecting and analyzing data and preparing assessment reports. Among my public health interests has been the development for analyzing the status of youth alcohol use in this community.
