WASHINGTON, April 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Robert J. Gould, a behavioral scientist who has helped lead some of the nation's most successful social marketing campaigns, has been named president of Partnership for Prevention. The appointment by Partnership's board of directors was announced today by Dr. Jonathan E. Fielding, chairman of the board.
