IS-2 at the 15th Annual Conference on the Science of D&I in Health

The 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health, co-hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and AcademyHealth, will be hosted December 11-14, 2022.

This year’s theme, (Re)Building Better Systems: Being Proactive, Nimble, and Responsive, will build upon lessons learned about rapidly changing community health and clinical settings to envisioning new models for conducting D&I science that respond to the shifting needs of diverse systems and populations, and use flexible and rigorous methodologies to anticipate challenges and ongoing change.

IS-2 Scholars and Faculty are featured during several of the plenaries, panel, and poster sessions. For more information about registration and session details, visit
