Sam serves as CCCPH’s Lead Evaluator. He coordinates efforts to collect, analyze, interpret and use program data. Sam ensures that CCCPH evaluation data and the resulting products are presentable and available to CCCPH’s funders, partners and the public. Prior to CCCPH, Sam evaluated programs to promote physical activity and healthy eating for the NC Division of Public Health’s (DPH’s) Physical Activity and Nutrition Branch, coordinated the WIC Famers’ Market Nutrition Program in DPH’s Nutrition Services Branch and set up farmers' markets to process Credit/Debit and EBT (Food Stamps) at the non-profit, Leaflight. A prior career in the culinary industry made Sam curious about food systems, and ultimately led to his current work in chronic disease prevention.
