I have been responsible for board development and staff hiring, and have worked successfully to increase the scope and expertise of our organization, expanding it from 10 to 20 people. I believe DataHaven is now more representative of the diverse backgrounds and perspectives found across Connecticut, and therefore better equipped to accomplish its mission to democratize local data on public health and quality of life.

BOLD SOLUTION: Mark created the Community Wellbeing Survey program, which formally partners with more than 100 academic and healthcare institutions, state and local government agencies, and nonprofits to collect, analyze, and share data on well-being, public health, and economic opportunity at the neighborhood level. The DataHaven Community Wellbeing Survey serves as a primary data source for most of the Community Health Needs Assessments conducted every three years by Connecticut’s nonprofit hospitals and their local partners, including health departments.
