Tym Rourke, recognized as a state and national philanthropic leader in the area of substance use disorder prevention, treatment and recovery, is joining Third Horizons Strategies, a national healthcare consulting firm working with healthcare industry experts to advance health equity and integrated behavioral healthcare.
During his 13 years at the Foundation, Tym oversaw the Foundation’s grantmaking to address substance use disorder, chaired the Governor’s Commission on Substance Use, and directed the Foundation’s New Hampshire Tomorrow initiative to increase opportunities for children and families. He led in the creation of the state’s youth substance use prevention plan and spearheaded the Foundation’s partnership with the Conrad Hilton Foundation, which resulted in medical providers implementing a proven youth screening and intervention protocol for substance use.
