CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Abt Associates announced that Scott W. Royal, Ph.D., M.P.H., a social and behavioral epidemiologist and expert in managing clinical research programs, has been promoted to Division Vice President and will lead its Domestic Health Division. Dr. Royal will oversee the company's Behavioral Health, Health Policy, and Public Health and Epidemiology practices.

"We are very pleased that Scott has agreed to take on the leadership role for our Domestic Health Division," said Kathleen Flanagan, Group Vice President for Social, Economic and Health Policy. "He is a recognized clinical researcher, specializing in epidemiologic and survey research, for a broad range of government and private clients such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and private pharmaceutical and industry clients. His demonstrated ability to successfully blend deep substantive and technical experience with business leadership makes him the right person to position us for the accelerated growth of our health research and implementation capabilities."
