Implementation Science Working Group

In partnership with Massachusetts General Brigham and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the Community Engagement program hosts monthly meetings of the Implementation Science Working Group (ISWG), which brings together investigators and trainees at any stage in their careers to share ideas and learn about the field of implementation science. Monthly offerings include methods and topical sessions as well as opportunities for information sharing, community building, and skills development. Through these activities, ISWG seeks to build collaborations among researchers who are engaging in implementation science research.

In fall 2021, the ISWG focused on implementation science and health equity:
