Linda Niebauer
Director of Communications

A long-standing member of the University of Colorado Department of Family Medicine, Linda began her primary care work there in the early ’70s as coordinator for the family medicine residency program. She was among the early leaders in the development of practice-based research networks having laid the groundwork for the Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network (ASPN) with Dr. Larry Green. Linda has 30 years of experience with the opportunities and challenges associated with these networks having served as communications coordinator for ASPN for 15 years. She played a similar role for the State Networks of Colorado Ambulatory Practices and Partners (SNOCAP, four Colorado networks). She has provided consultation for multiple networks, and continued to participate in practice-based research projects in her role as network associate for the six-year RWJF-funded Prescription for Health program, and as project coordinator for an AHRQ-funded medication management/patient safety project in the University of Colorado hospital clinics. She worked again with the University of Colorado Family Medicine Residency in an evaluation capacity for the Preparing the Personal Physician for Practice project…a national comparative case study of family medicine education innovations.

Presently Linda splits her time between coordinating communications among the ACT participants and supporting communications and special projects for the University of Colorado Department of Family Medicine.

Linda has two children and is the doting grandma of Abby, Rayen and Liam. She loves living in Colorado, and especially enjoys white water rafting.
