Ally Evans Joining Advocate Health Care

Ally, one of the "start-up" team members of NIATx, is moving along to new professional horizons. Her last day at NIATx was May 30th. She has taken a position at Advocate Health Care, a major health care system in Chicago, as a Quality Improvement Coach. This will provide new professional opportunities for Ally and will also move work and home closer, since Ally currently resides in Chicago. Ally has been instrumental in the development of NIATx and the Advancing Recovery program. We will miss her!

Helena Kahle will serve as the main contact for the Advancing Recovery program until Ally's position is filled.

The position vacancy for Advancing Recovery Program Manager will be posted in early June at:
