Add to calendar

In this webinar, Kevin Fiscella M.D., M.P.H., Professor and Co-Director of the Research Division in the Department of Family Medicine, will discuss the critical role of health equity in the generation and use of research evidence, and efforts to reduce health disparities through dissemination & implementation.

Fiscella, who is also the Associate Director of the Rochester Center for Communication and Disparities Research at URMC and co-Director of Equity-Focused Dissemination & Implementation (EQ-DI) at the UR Clinical and Translational Science Institute, studies pragmatic strategies to improve equity within primary care.


This webinar is part of the UR CTSI’s Equity-Focused Dissemination and Implementation (EQ-DI) webinar series, which explores the bridge between research and action, and how to address issues that can speed up or slow down the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based practices.

The COVID-19 pandemic showed us how rapidly environments and systems evolve and how that can have a huge impact on how we get interventions like testing and treatment to the people who need them. This year the series focuses on how context – and its complex and evolving nature – can impact dissemination and implementation of health-improving interventions. The webinar series provides perspectives on implementation dynamics, engaging stakeholders, building relations across health systems, and most importantly, how EQ-DI science can help prevent vulnerable individuals and social groups from falling through the cracks.
