Seminar Series: Engaging in Research: Advancing the Science and Practice of Research Partnership – Sept 23

Dr. Heather Gainforth, UBC Okanagan.

Dr. Gainforth’s academic training in Health Promotion, Knowledge Translation and Kinesiology has fostered her belief that evidence-based health promotion interventions and guidelines must be widely disseminated both in general and special populations. Her research aims to close the gap between health behaviour change research and practice by examining knowledge translation – the act of moving research evidence into the hands of research users. Her emerging research program aims to identify, develop and implement novel strategies for disseminating evidence-based health information and interventions to populations. Her systems-based research is grounded in behaviour change theory and techniques and is guided by strong collaborations between researchers and communities.

The seminar will take place from 4-5 pm, Thurs. Sept. 23, 2021.
