July 2018: Fireside Chat on Implementation Science & Surveillance Research Program (SRP) Crossroads
Dr. Lynne Penberthy
Since kicking off our ‘fireside chat’ format in late 2016, we have been joined via webinar by all manner of leading experts, collaborators, mid-career investigators, and colleagues from around NIH to discuss funding, training, growth in the field, and global implementation science. In 2018 we are excited to welcome leaders from around DCCPS in discussion of the various research programs and their intersection with implementation science. On Tuesday, July 24, 2018, from 2:00 - 3:00pm ET, Dr. David Chambers will be joined by Dr. Lynne Penberthy, Associate Director of the Surveillance Research Program (SRP) within DCCPS to discuss the interface between implementation science and SRP activities. SRP provides national leadership in the science of cancer surveillance as well as analytical tools and methodological expertise in collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and disseminating reliable population-based cancer statistics. This surveillance infrastructure benefits the public, policymakers, and scientists in understanding changes in cancer incidence and outcomes in all segments of the US population over time. Drs. Chambers and Penberthy will touch on where IS and SRP staff are already building programs together, supporting initiatives, and future opportunities for collaboration.
