Join us for the inaugural Enola Proctor Lecture with Deputy Director for Implementation Science David Chambers who will discuss Reflections on Building D&I Research: Contributions, Challenges and Opportunities to Come.
This event is part of our annual D&I Proposal Development Bootcamp. The lecture will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will be available to all via Zoom. In-person space is reserved for Bootcamp participants. Please register to receive your unique Zoom link.
This lecture was established in 2022 as a way to honor Enola Proctor and her unique and cardinal contributions to the field of dissemination and implementation science.
Enola Proctor’s research is motivated by the question, how do we ensure that people receive the very best possible care? Proctor’s research has been funded by the NIA, AHRQ, and the NIMH for 26 consecutive years. She directs the Implementation Research Institute, a training program in implementation science funded by the National Institute for Mental Health. She led the establishment of several university-wide centers and cores in implementation science, including the Center for Dissemination and Implementation at Institute for Public Health and the Dissemination and Implementation Research Core for Washington University’s CTSA program.
We solicited nominations form the WashU D&I community for someone of exceptional influence in the field’s vision for the future. After reviewing the nominations with Enola, David Chambers was selected to deliver the first lecture of what we hope will become an annual event.
