District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett
Chairman of the Board
Addiction Policy Forum's founder, Jessica Hulsey, began work in the addiction field in 1992. The impact of addiction in her own family was the impetus for her focus on substance use disorders - first in a community coalition in southern California, followed by an appointment by President Bill Clinton to serve on the Drug-Free Communities Commission, and serving as a legislative aid in the U.S. House of Representatives on drug policy issues.
She founded Addiction Policy Forum in 2015, the Addiction Policy Forum to end stigma, help patients and families in crisis and translate the science around addiction.
