"Bill’s ability to synthesize sometimes-divergent information from multiple sources into a coherent single response is something I admire greatly. He is very insightful when it comes to considering approaches to providing healthcare that take into account the needs and concerns of two groups of suffering individuals, namely, those with chronic pain and those with substance use disorders (as well as those with both illnesses). His voice is frequently heard and his contributions to the group’s process and discussion are always welcomed and valued."

"Bill has consistently been engaged, reliable, on-task, and an extremely valuable source of information. He is a critical thinker with strong analytical skills, bringing an unusually powerful scientific background to the policy forum. He is always a pleasure to work with, both interpersonally, and in knowing that whatever project is at hand will be completed on time and with exceptional effort and attention to detail."
