The NCRE 2014 Conference will be held September 18-19,
2014 at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado.
An opening reception will be held on Wednesday evening September 17, 2014.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Implementation Science: Applications
for Tribal Settings”
- Dr. Pennie Foster-Fishman from
Michigan State University and
Dr. Marc Atkins from the University of Illinois
at Chicago are this year’s invited speakers. Both will share models for
implementing evidenced-based interventions within the real-world context
of diverse communities. In
particular, Dr. Foster-Fishman will share her work developing the ABLe
Change Framework, a model for effective implementation and systems change,
while Dr. Atkins will share his work implementing effective mental health
services for children and families in high poverty urban communities. Drs.
Foster-Fishman’s and Dr. Atkins’ presentations will be an opportunity for
those working in American Indian and Alaska Native communities to gain
knowledge from lessons learned in other community contexts.
- Drs. Foster-Fishman
and Atkins will each provide a keynote talk, followed by small-group roundtable
discussions in which conference participants are invited to share their
experience implementing evidence-based interventions with tribal communities,
reflecting on challenges and solutions in settings that are both similar to and
divergent from the settings in which Drs. Foster-Fishman and Atkins conduct
