GPP Welcomes NEW Program Intern

Please join us in extending a big welcome to the newest member of the GPP team! We are thrilled to have a new summer intern as we kick off Summer 2019!

Zoe will be joining us this summer as the Program Intern for the Georgia Prevention Project. She plans to utilize her past experiences and work in substance abuse research and outreach to assist fellow GPP members with a number of projects this summer. As 2018-19 school year projects are winding down, Zoe will aid in program evaluation and data analysis to help update and improve for the upcoming year.

Zoe grew up in Darnestown, Maryland and attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine. She graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor’s of Art in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. While in Maine, she dedicated much of her time to volunteer at the Waterville Police Department’s Operation HOPE (Heroin Opiate Prevention Effort) organization, which spurred her desire to pursue research in substance abuse.

She recently completed the first year of her Master’s of Science degree in Health Services Research at Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.  While much of her research has been concentrated on access to substance abuse treatment centers, she is excited to expand her knowledge into the world of prevention with the Georgia Prevention Project.

We look forward to all of the great work Zoe will accomplish!
