Has Your Research Been Translated into Practice and Policy? Share Your Story Today

AcademyHealth's Public Health Systems Research (PHSR) Interest Group is looking for stellar examples of the dissemination of public health services and systems research (PHSSR) to the practice and policy community. Specifically, they are interested in cataloging stories that showcase active dissemination of PHSSR (e.g., press releases, social media campaigns, City Council presentations, community coalition meetings) that have resulted in a change (e.g., passing of new policy or regulation, initiating further discussion among decision makers, interagency MOUs, etc.) at the local, community, state or national level.

The 2014 PHSR Interest Group: Call for Dissemination Success Stories is now open and accepting submissions!  If you have conducted research that has led to a change in public health practice or policy OR you’d like to share a colleague’s success at this, apply today to help raise the visibility of your work.

To apply, please email a 2-3 paragraph description of the dissemination story to by August 29. Your description should include the researcher's name and affiliation, a brief overview of the findings, a description of the audience and dissemination vehicle, and the practice or policy change that occurred.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jessica Winkler at
