On this episode, I’m chatting with Eric Persaud about evaluation at the National Institutes of Health, including his work in the Worker Training Program at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. We also talked about his dissertation, how he got into the field of evaluation, and his experiences in conducting evaluation in general.
