Strategic Dissemination Project

Principal Investigators: Gloria Krahn, PhD, MPH & Charles Drum, JD, PhD

Current health intervention and dissemination methods are not reaching a significant portion of the disability population - those with lower incomes, from minority communities, with intellectual disabilities, or whose primary language is not English. The problem is well documented (Krisberg, 2004), but few effective strategies have been identified. The RRTC: Health & Wellness proposes to establish a series of annual strategic dissemination "think tank" summits to determine current best practices on how to more effectively disseminate to targeted communities. These would be conducted in collaboration with the . Sample topics are: (1) how to target messages to specific subgroups; (2) outreach to urban Hispanics with disabilities at risk for diabetes; (3) "Doc Talk"-how to effectively communicate with physicians, and others.
