Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am the director of Healthy Options for Prevention and Education (HOPE) Coalition, a youth-adult partnership coalition created to reduce youth violence, substance use and promote adolescent health in the city of Worcester. Under my direction, youth in the HOPE Coalition have won policy victories such as prohibiting the sale of tobacco products in pharmacies and revising the temporary signage ordinance in Worcester which greatly reduced places for advertising and the amount of advertising allowed.
