Dissemination and Implementation Science Special Interest Group Meeting, August 26

Interested in learning more about implementation science and dissemination and implementation strategies?

You are invited to a virtual Dissemination and Implementation Science Special Interest Group Meeting on Thursday, August 26, 3:00-4:00 PM.

In this session, Sara Folta, PhD will describe, from start to finish, her dissemination study: the StrongWomen – Healthy Hearts intervention. This was a community-based intervention designed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease among midlife and older women. Dr. Folta will discuss the considerations and challenges from writing the grant proposal and deciding on a framework through to publishing the results and figuring out next steps once an intervention has reached the “end” of the translational spectrum.
