JW has demonstrated flexibility throughout the unpredictable course of the project and has openly welcomed input for best solutions to issues.

To maximize the use of resources and improve data quality, JW recruited expert staff.

JW also recruited a Recruitment and Retention Marketing Manager to support retention initiatives. He coordinated the skills of both individuals to ensure above average retention rates in order for the COVID19 study to validate its data. He has also skillfully coordinated with a myriad of stakeholders and shown professionalism. JW has helped to lead and unify internal resources, including staff members, study partners, health institutions and the government in the fight against COVID-19.
