The Damien Center would like to congratulate Jamie Broderick for her promotion to Care Coordination Program Manager! Jamie will directly oversee the care coordination staff and leads our interdisciplinary team to develop, implement, and monitor client services. She will train and supervise new care coordinators in accordance with our agency's training curriculum, and she will participate in evaluative and quality assurance activities to ensure professional accountability to the agency, funders, and clients served.
Jamie originally joined the Damien Center staff in March 2010 as a Care Coordinator. Jamie started her career after college at Denver Health and Authority. She worked on a CDC funded HIV prevention counseling study called Project Respect 2. The study compared different forms of HIV testing and risk reduction counseling in clients at STD clinics throughout the United States. From Denver, Jamie moved to New Jersey and took a position as a Ryan White Title II case manager in Asbury Park, NJ. There she assisted clients with their day to day needs including housing, transportation, medical, etc. Building on her case management experience, she was fortunate enough to accept a position at the National AIDS Treatment Advocacy Project as a treatment educator in all 5 boroughs of New York City. NATAP is a leader in up-to-the-minute HIV treatment information covering the latest in drug development and research. Before moving back home to Indiana, Jamie was promoted to Director of Programs at the New Jersey Women and AIDS Network in New Brunswick, NJ where she helped to implement the SISTA Project.
After arriving in Indiana, Jamie has been working in tobacco control for the Indiana Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Agency. She was the Director of Programs for the Central West region and is also currently the coordinator for the Boone County Tobacco Free Coalition. Jamie started OUT Against Tobacco, a small group of tobacco control advocates that assist the LGBT community to fight back against the tobacco industry.
In her free time, Jamie likes to read, officiate women's basketball, and spend time with her partner and 3 kids.
