“Moving Research into Practice”

Moving research findings into clinical practice settings takes, on average, seventeen years or longer; this research-practice time gap is far too long for patients to wait for the best, most effective approaches to care. The Health Improvement Project for Teens is a CDC and US Department of HHS recognized strong evidence-based intervention for addressing major health risks faced by adolescent girls. These vulnerable teens have continued to bear the brunt of sexual health disparities including disproportionate rates of heterosexually- acquired HIV, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancies. I will discuss both the scientific aspects of developing tailored interventions for communities as well as the entrepreneurial aspect of translational science - moving research to practice.
