Ruben Nanez
Program Administrator

Ruben Nanez is the lead Program Administrator for the Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Substance Exposed Infants (NAS-SEI) ECHO clinics. Ruben’s passion for mental health and substance use disorders comes from his desire to help end the stigma and the barriers to mental health care.

Ruben has been with Rutgers Project for over two years and enjoys the challenges and rewards of launching new ECHO programs. Ruben enjoys spending time with his spouse and newborn daughter exploring New Jersey and the surrounding states.

A quote that has helped Ruben through his daughter’s infant stage is:

“Don’t worry about the sleep you don’t get; enjoy the sleep you do get.” Miguel A. Garcia
