Quincy Jones is a summer intern at the O’Neill institute.
Prior to joining O’Neill, Jones worked as a lecturer at the University of Guyana College of Medical Science and as a policy and data analysis consultant at HESC.

Jones has also headed the national mapping of juvenile drug referral and related services and the drafting of Guyana’s national interagency “Policies and Protocol for Attending to a Child Found in Possession of Drugs in Schools.”
He is a 2016 Chevening Scholar and holds a medical degree from the Latin American School of Medicine in Havana, Cuba.
