Peer Leaders Champion Implementation Science Community of Practice
Two Comprehensive Cancer Control Program staff members became champions for the GW Cancer Center Implementation Science Community of Practice this winter. Xarria Lewis from Missouri and Elizabeth Westbrook from Kentucky, both comprehensive cancer control specialists, stepped into the role of peer leaders seamlessly. The monthly series is designed to help other cancer control professionals apply implementation science to their evidence-based interventions (EBIs). Community of practice members discuss EBI challenges and successes and design real-time solutions for their ongoing work. Check out the Cancer Control Implementation Science Base Camp training, which is now accessible to anyone registered on the Online Academy.
