Meet Kevin Davis

What's your favorite aspect of working with our team?

The range of experiences we all have. It helps us to have strong interdisciplinary teams and discussions.

What's one goal you hope to accomplish with the team this year?

We are in the process of planning a podcast, and I hope we are able to get it off the ground this year!

What motivates you to do your best work every day?

Love and appreciation of Indianapolis and Marion County as a whole.

What's one unique skill or hobby you bring to the team?

Large event management. In one of my previous jobs, I helped run the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic for the Tippecanoe County Health Department. We averaged 400 visitors a day at our peak.

What's one piece of advice you'd give to someone just starting in your field?

One of the keys to Public Health Practice, is trust. None of the stuff you learned in school matters if the community you are in does not trust you.

What's a book or podcast you'd recommend to your teammates?

Dopesick by Beth Macy and the follow up book, Raising Lazarus: Hope, Justice, and the Future of America’s Overdose Crisis.

What's something you're passionate about outside of work?

Indianapolis and Purdue Sports.
