Jeremy Martinez knows how to harness the power of data and data visualization to drive public health policy and programming decisions. He has extensive experience using this expertise in collaboration with an array of stakeholders to address a wide range of public health issues.
Prior to joining HMA, Jeremy designed and managed the evaluation of programs to increase breast, cervical and colorectal cancer prevention and screening efforts, as well as Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination uptake, at the American Cancer Society (ACS). He created Tableau reports utilizing multiple data sources and managed data visualization tools that allowed end users to explore data and better understand results when making programmatic decisions.
In a joint effort with the CDC, Jeremy directed all evaluation efforts for the National HPV Roundtable, a project aimed to reduce the number of HPV-associated cancers and cervical precancerous lesions, as well as non-cancer outcomes. The roundtable encouraged increased frequency and strength of clinician recommendations for HPV vaccine, decreased missed opportunities for HPV vaccine administration, and increased HPV vaccination rates at national and state levels.
With ICF International, Jeremy oversaw case studies, structured interviews, data abstraction and site visit summaries. He led a variety of public health evaluation projects, including children’s oral health promotion, HIV/AIDS prevention efforts, and child abuse and neglect prevention. He formed and oversaw partnerships with health systems, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), public health systems, and behavioral health systems.
Acting as the team lead for a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) grant, Jeremy addressed high rates of youth suicide, substance abuse, bullying and school violence in 25 American Indian and Alaska Native communities in the United States and its territories through the implementation of culturally appropriate, evidence-based interventions.
With the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Jeremy coordinated $2 million in federal grants to reduce youth suicide and violence. He recommended evidence-based and promising practice interventions and managed relationships with statewide grantees. Jeremy was responsible for coordinating data collection for multiple cross-site evaluation surveys – providing technical assistance for longitudinal, cross-sectional, qualitative and quantitative evaluation components and implementation.
Jeremy earned his master’s degree in sociology from the University of Colorado, Denver. He received his bachelor’s degree in sociology, with a minor in American sign language and deaf studies, from Maryville College in Tennessee.
Jeremy remains a diehard Denver Broncos fan despite now living in Decatur, Georgia. He is proud to be a founding member in support of Atlanta United FC.
