Reducing the burden of cancer on the public requires not just an understanding of "what works" but an effective approach to move evidence-based interventions (EBIs) and programs into community practice.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is pleased to present the sixth Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. Step 2 cyber-seminar, designed to engage researchers, cancer control planners, and public health practitioners in a discussion around the successes and challenges of translating research into practice.

During this interactive session, presenters will discuss their experiences with a cancer control mini-grants program designed to implement research-tested nutrition and physical activity programs in a largely rural area of Southwest Georgia. The project was a collaboration between the Southwest Georgia Cancer Coalition and the Emory Prevention Research Center Community Advisory Board. Their discussion of successes and challenges faced in implementing the interventions with fidelity will generate a lively exchange on lessons learned for future translation activities.

Please join us for an informative presentation. We invite you also to share your experiences partnering with others to ensure that innovations reach the people and communities that need them most.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the role of partnerships in the process of conducting a mini-grants program to help community-based organizations (CBOs) implement research-tested programs

    with fidelity
  • Discuss the benefits of a mini-grants program, training and technical assistance for translating evidenced-based interventions (EBIs)
  • Understand contextual factors CBOs face in implementing EBIs
  • Describe types of program adaptations and reason organizations made those adaptations
  • Discuss recommendations for CBOs that seek to implement research-tested programs with fit and fidelity
