Geoff Laredo

Geoff Laredo is what you’ve heard described by some people as a policy wonk.  He has worked on substance use and addictions issues for nearly thirty years, and for NIDA he’s the person who talks with Congress and many of the special interest groups in our field.  Because he has been doing this for so long, NIDA staff and others can use him as a resource on a whole range of issues we all focus on.  He lives in Washington DC with his wife and their big cat Moses, and in their spare time they like to take trips to fun places all over the world.
