Principal Investigator: Dorothy Daley
Funding Agency: Pennsylvania State University
Period: 2015 - 2017
Dr. Dorothy Daley, an Associate Professor in the School of Public Affairs and Administration at the University of Kansas and Dr. Michelle Frisco, Associate Professor of Sociology at Penn State have received a three-year $750,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The grant, "Connecting Population Health Scientists across Disciplines: Generating Evidence, Informing Research Translation and Fostering a Culture of Health" will be used to develop three conferences that will highlight cutting edgepopulation health research and foster the development of a much needed interdisciplinary professional space for population health scientists to convene, collaborate and share knowledge. Forums that generate and improve population health science help ensure that a high quality evidence base underpins the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's new major initiative, advancing a Culture of Health in the US.
