Alycia Santilli is the Assistant Director of CARE. She has worked as an organizer for Connecticut AIDS Resource Coalition, a state-wide HIV/AIDS organization. Recognizing the link between policy change and research, she became interested in public health research as a means for advancing public policy. Ms. Santilli began coordinating research projects at the Yale School of Public Health in 2005. She brings research skills in survey design, recruitment of hard-to-reach study participants, data collection protocol, and intervention development.

Ms. Santilli joined CARE shortly after its inception in 2007 and has since been integral in providing administrative oversight and strategic direction. Ms. Santilli is responsible for all research and other activities conducted in neighborhood settings. In 2009, she hired, trained, supervised, and directed 20 surveyors who completed more than 1200 household surveys in just seven weeks as part of Community Interventions for Health, focusing on all aspects of community engaged research and dissemination of findings. She is currently developing and implementing evidence-based program and policy interventions aimed to improve health in the community.
