Join us in October as we continue the exploration of practice-based evidence and how it can inform your own community’s efforts implementing interventions within healthcare systems.

In this second of a three part series, The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Research to Reality (R2R) October cyber-seminarwill highlight three of the R2R Mentorship Program projects that are implementing interventions within healthcare systems.  Lisa Troyer, Angela McFall, and Michael Celestin will share the details of their projects, outcomes, and lessons learned about partnering with, and implementing in, healthcare systems to deliver evidence-based intervention.  Lisa and Angela, with their mentors, Dr. Eugene Lengerich and June Ryan, have both been working with insurance providers and healthcare providers to implement colorectal cancer screening programs in their states.  Michael Celestin, with guidance from his mentor, Dr. Alton Hart, has been working on a program to increase the use of evidence-based tobacco cessation strategies by healthcare physicians within the Louisiana State University Health system. All three mentees will share their experiences and how the lessons they learned may be translated to other communities and inform future research.  If you missed September's session on Evidence-based Public Health, watch the archive here

Learn more about the Mentorship Program and read the stories of the mentees.   And don’t forget to join us on November 13th for final part of this series where we will explore using community partnerships to adapt and implement evidence-based interventions and hear from the final three R2R Mentorship Program mentees.
