Evan Two men empowering each other

evan’s Team

Passion for combatting the opioid crisis attracted a world-class team of experts. Our team is made up of public health advisors, scientists, technologists, informaticians, doctors, software developers, government agents, and entrepreneurs who have worked hard to make the digital solution to opioid crises available to everyone to save lives. But none of this would have happened without the passion of our visionary founder/entrepreneur: Jeff Hardy.

Jeff himself is in recovery and has true understanding and compassion for those at risk of losing their lives to drugs and alcohol. His purpose in conceiving Lifeguard App is to save lives, thereby allowing a chance at treatment.
