CEPEG prides itself on helping communities understand their health issues and improve policy and program solutions. We share our multi-disciplinary expertise and commitment to scientific rigor and cultural humility.
Ms. Kimminau has been a CEPEG team member since 2006 and has served in research and administrative roles on studies funded by NIH, NCI, state health agencies, and pharmaceutical companies as well as operating as CEPEG’s Business Manager. Originally joining the team as a school recruitment leader for Health Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS), she established the CEPEG systems that reliably obtain the largest-ever numbers of Colorado students participating in state-representative adolescent health surveys. During 2011-14 she led development of the Colorado Model of Inpatient Tobacco Treatment (COMITT) for the University of Colorado Hospital. More recently she led the development and implementation of the All-patient Cancer Center Expansion of Supportive Services (ACCESS) for Tobacco Cessation Treatment for the University of Colorado Cancer Center and continues to be involved with this program. She enjoys her diverse role with CEPEG and gets excited if a new project involves spreadsheets and Gantt charts. In her free time, she can be found at a gym, spending time with her husband and two adult daughters and son-in-laws, or enjoying a good bottle of wine.
