Research Analyst, UCSF
Scott completed undergraduate work at the University of Colorado, Boulder and obtained a graduate certificate in Health Policy and Management from the University of Southern Maine. He has been involved in HIV prevention for 17 years.
He started as a volunteer at an AIDS service organization, where he later became the MSM Outreach Coordinator. He then became an HIV test counselor and then coordinator of testing and counseling clinics for the Boulder County Health Department in Boulder, Colorado. At CAPS, he acquired expertise on program evaluation through his work assessing strategies for CBOs to use when evaluating the Mpowerment Project. He was part of the CAPS team that studied how a local CBO used the Replication Package to implement the Mpowerment Project. His role as Research Analyst requires him to conduct hundreds of interviews each year with agencies across the US. He is very familiar with issues that arise as CBOs attempt to implement, tailor, and adapt the Mpowerment Project and other science-based HIV prevention interventions.
