CPCRN Scholars Workgroup
Co-chair: Daniela Friedman
Purpose: The CPCRN Scholars Workgroup strives to educate students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, practitioners, and other health professionals in dissemination and implementation (D&I) science focused on cancer prevention and control and health equity. Scholars will be provided with opportunities to engage in mentored projects with workgroups that most align with their interests. Scholars will have different tracks to follow, but an educational component covering core competencies is required. Through a formalized process, it is our hope that we can increase: the depth and breadth of the Scholars’ connectedness within the CPCRN network, a diverse cancer research pipeline, and applied D&I work in academic and clinical settings. Workgroup products are a D&I curriculum, evaluation of curricula, and Scholars’ productivity after the training.
