In his role with CHESS, he serves as director for three federally funded technology-transfer centers focused on addiction, prevention, and mental health (Great Lakes ATTC, PTTC & MHTTC). UW-Madison’s designation as the regional center is an honor for the community, and a true testament to his dedication to supporting addiction and mental health care.
