On February 9, Kat Phelps, PhD, will present on how inviting community members to engage in the research process is critical to translating scientific advances into benefits for the broader public and extending the reach and relevance of those benefits to those in greatest need. Phelps is a Research Equity and Engagement Consultant for the Wisconsin Network for Research Support (WINRS) in the UW-Madison School of Nursing. In this presentation, Phelps will explore how community voice was incorporated into the development of the Translational Science Benefits Model. The perspective of evaluation and engagement professionals, as well as those with expertise from lived experience, will be shared. Register via Zoom to attend the presentation.
The presentation is part of the DRISS series, an interactive, monthly lunchtime seminar for UW-Madison faculty, staff, students, and community members to learn about the growing science of dissemination and implementation research and practice. Enhance your knowledge and skills, share experiences, and develop connections with others in this community for your future work. Each seminar will feature a 40-minute presentation followed by 20 minutes of interactive discussion. DRISS occurs every second Friday of the academic year at noon. Auto generated captions in English are available. Seminars are open to all, and participants can receive credit for attendance through the Department of Population Health.
