Our Clients and Funders


PDES clients include organizations from across the country, including health departments and agencies in local and state government, community-based organizations, foundations, and research institutions. For example, we have worked with public health agencies in Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Alaska, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.


We have received grants from a variety of sources, including the National Institutes of Health, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Annie E. Casey Foundation, Health Resources and Services Administration, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, U.S. Department of Education, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


"I knew from the outset that I could trust the high quality and timeliness of PDES' work.  But more importantly, I knew that they value health equity, provide direct feedback, and tell the truth.”

"Working with PDES has been invaluable. They review data, offer consultation and advice, and complete projects we’d never have the time and resources to do on our own. We are consistently impressed by their work and by the attention each person there gives to our program.”

Lisa Aquino, MHS
Former Manager
Alaska Tobacco Prevention and Control Program

“I have been extremely pleased with the products PDES has produced for us and their high level of professionalism. I particularly value their understanding and comfort with the community, their competency, and their ability to build consensus and partnerships.”
