Translating and Disseminating research findings is a critical part of the scientific process. In this workshop, Steph Chernitskiy will lead participants through the Robert Wood Johnson’s toolkit for research dissemination.  Participants will learn how to define and target their audience for dissemination, learn how to build relationships, create a translation plan, and implement a dissemination strategy that considers multiple outlets.

The workshop will also feature a panel with Sandra Chafouleas (UConn and Collaboratory for School and Child Health), Marlene Schwartz (UConn and the Rudd Center), and Abigail Fisher Williamson (Trinity and the Center for Hartford Engagement and Research). These scholars will share how they have successfully disseminated their work to a variety of audiences.
