CHIP Featured Employee for October

Stacey Leeds is CHIP’s featured employee for the month of October. Stacey currently is a part-time Administrative Specialist, who has worked at CHIP since July of 2004. To put that in perspective, she began working at CHIP a year after CHIP moved into its current location in the Ryan Refectory building, but before CHIP expanded to the second floor. Her primary responsibilities include (1) coordinating the CHIP internal seed grant competition, (2) planning and managing the CHIP Lecture Series, which involves about 20 presentations per year at CHIP by world class health behavior researchers, and (3) addressing facility issues, including office usage, new space requirements, and building maintenance and security. Stacey also oversees CHIP’s multiple LISTSERVs and helps to facilitate the Annual CHIP Meeting and other CHIP-related events. Lastly, she assists with other special projects each year at the request of the Director and Associate Director.

Thank you, Stacey!
