Kimberly Lohman Clapp

Executive Vice President, Community ENGAGEMENT

Kimberly leads Addiction Policy Forum's Innovation Now initiative, a national spotlight on effective programs and inspiring people who are changing the response to addiction, state by state. She serves as a spokesperson at keynote events, in press releases and media interviews, and on social media and training videos. She joined APF in 2018 after serving as the APF Family Day emcee in DC, wanting to work with those impacted by addiction and help save the next family from heartbreak. 

 

Kimberly is a five-time Emmy award winning journalist, and author of two books, dedicating the last 25 years to giving a voice to the voiceless, holding the powerful accountable, and educating about dangerous trends, scams, and products. For ten years in the Washington, DC television news market, her consumer investigative reports, with a medical and scientific focus, garnered national attention. She was the journalist who exposed the link between breast implants and lymphoma; she was first to report on the dangers of teen vaping and powdered caffeine; and through DNA testing, she helped two sisters, both abandoned at birth, and never knew the other existed, find one another.

 

With passion, empathy, and concern, Kimberly has served as a moderator, host, and emcee for countless organizations, including the YMCA, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Children's National Medical Center, the Alzheimer's Association, and the Arlington County Substance Abuse Town Hall. She has facilitated televised community phone banks, staffed by experts, to offer free assistance to people struggling with addiction and other diseases. She is married and has five children and step-children.
