Linda began work at the CU Department of Family Medicine in the early ’70s as the residency program coordinator, and was among the early leaders in the development of practice-based research networks having laid the groundwork for the Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network. She played a similar role for SNOCAP, four Colorado practice-based research networks. She was part of the RWJF national program office, Prescription for Health; and communications director for two Colorado Health Foundation-sponsored programs, Advancing Care Together and UPSTREAM Together; designed to better integrate behavioral health and primary care in Colorado, and to work with communities to prevent mental, emotional and behavioral problems. She works with a small strategic communications team with the family medicine chair to keep a large group of folks connected through newsletters, monthly meetings, innovative lectures, the Precipice magazine and salons. Recently she began working with the Larry A. Green Center team to assist with a host of Colorado activities related to the primary care measures initiative and the Aurora Health Commons project.
