Event Details


To explore how NIDDK-interested researchers can use implementation science to ensure NIDDK’s evidence-based and promising interventions reach 1) diverse populations at highest risk and/or with disparate rates for NIDDK diseases/conditions and 2) diverse practice settings (e.g., clinics, schools, places of worship, workplace, social services agencies, and other community organizations).

Meeting Objectives

  1. To bring together chronic disease-relevant scientists, implementation scientists from across scientific disciplines, and community and patient partners to discuss how implementation science can be used to advance health equity for NIDDK diseases/conditions
  2. To identify research opportunities and gap areas to promote equitable implementation of evidence-based and promising interventions for NIDDK diseases/conditions for diverse populations and settings
  3. To identify training resources, research tools, capacity building needs, and opportunities for networking and collaboration to better plan, and conduct rigorous implementation science studies to advance health equity for NIDDK diseases/conditions
