Implementation Research

Our Goals

Our lab’s overarching mission is to improve the lives of people suffering from behavioral health disorders. We believe in a community-based participatory research approach that integrates community perspectives across all phases of research design. Our method is grounded in ongoing quality improvement, and we build partnerships and collaborations foremost before generalizable knowledge. Our team operates with a trauma-informed lens acknowledging the indelible impact of colonization in indigenous and often underserved populations. Health equity, not equality, centers our work which we do from various time zones across the United States.
