Winship members will now have access to a developing shared resource that will provide expertise in behavioral science methods. The new Intervention Development, Dissemination, and Implementation (IDDI) developmental shared resource is led by Michelle Kegler, DrPH, member of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program.
The purpose of IDDI is to support Winship members in developing, testing, and disseminating educational and systems interventions to prevent cancer, detect cancer early, or improve survivorship among residents of the state of Georgia. IDDI supports intervention research at all stages of development. The team’s strengths include formative research with diverse populations, intervention research, dissemination/implementation research, study recruitment, health communication, and community-engaged research.
The IDDI team is based in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education at the Rollins School of Public Health and the Winship Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program. In addition to Kegler, team members include Colleen McBride, PhD, Cam Escoffery, PhD, MPH, Sally Honeycutt, MPH, and Rebecca Woodruff, MPH.
