In this podcast I interview Dr. Jason Kilmer. He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Washington in 1997, and currently works at the University of Washington in both a research capacity and a student affairs capacity. He is a Research Assistant Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, continuing a 20-year affiliation with colleagues at the Addictive Behaviors Research Center and the Center for the Study of Health and Risk Behaviors through his role as an investigator on several studies evaluating prevention and intervention efforts for alcohol and drug use by college students. He is also the Assistant Director of Health and Wellness for Alcohol and Other Drug Education in the Division of Student Life, working with different areas across campus (including health, counseling, Greek life, residence life, and athletics) to increase student access to evidence based approaches. Dr Kilmer serves as the chair of the Washington State College Coalition for Substance Abuse Prevention. He also maintains an appointment as the Substance Abuse Prevention Program Coordinator for Saint Martin’s University. For ten years, he worked as an Addictive Behaviors Specialist in the Counseling Center at The Evergreen State College. Dr. Kilmer was the 2004 recipient of the Outstanding Mid-Level Professional Award for Region V of NASPA, was named a Research Fellow in 2005 by MOST of Us at Montana State University, and was named a Senior Scholar in Prevention in 2006 by Outside the Classroom.
