NCRE II Conference 2014


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 their work.
