Innovative Methods for Engaging Community in Building Home Visiting Evidence and Informing Policy

Date: September 17-18, 2024

Location: 555 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, DC

Community-engaged research offers a paradigm for home visiting to produce high impact research that influences policy and practice. The goal of this methods-focused meeting is to increase the capacity of the field to conduct inclusive, equitable research that generates evidence that is timely, relevant, valid, and useful. Please join us for 1.5 days of engaging content and deep discussions.

Registration is free but space is limited!

We are continuing to finalize the agenda and will post it shortly.
