Monthly intervention working group sessions alternate between two complementary formats: 1) a convener presents key issues related to their own intervention development and receives feedback from the group and 2) an application of Human Centered Design principles and practice for advancing the design, implementation, and sustainability of behavioral interventions. Issues such as ways to effectively partner with community groups, novel study designs, and ways of developing intervention protocols are examples of topics that have been covered. Faculty and pre and post-doctoral and from other institutions are welcome to participate.
