“I also want to thank Kevin Beverly for his leadership and for being an invaluable partner throughout the acquisition and integration of S3 into DLH. With Kevin at the helm, S3 grew to be a leading public health service organization providing solutions in clinical and biomedical research, epidemiology, health policy, and program evaluation. He will remain on board in an advisory role to support us in this transition; we are grateful for his many contributions and wish him all the best as he writes his next chapter.”
