Eve Weiss, MS is the Managing Director for the Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies (CChIPS). She manages the CChIPS portfolio of activities including communicating with the Industry Advisory Board and CChIPS researchers, facilitating the grant-making process, fostering the work of investigators, promoting the visibility of the Center’s achievements, and continuously developing the functioning of the Center to maintain its state-of-the-art research activities.
Prior to joining CChIPS, Eve worked for two decades in community-based research, the philanthropic sector, and non-profit evaluation. She has run a range of large-scale health policy and outcomes studies and most recently conducted qualitative research as part of a collaborative team at the Mixed Methods Research Center in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research focused on explaining ways that human behavior affects health and wellbeing, how structural barriers get in the way of health among vulnerable populations, and helping clients evaluate and understand if and how their programs are meeting their goals and impacting their target audiences. Eve brings these skills together in her work for the Center. Eve earned her BA in anthropology from UC Berkeley and her MS in health policy and management from the Harvard School of Public Health.
