Translational Science Vision

We strive to conduct prevention and health promotion research that positively impacts the health and well-being of youth, adults, families, and communities in Iowa and beyond. Our focus is on studying quality implementation, evaluation and dissemination of evidence-based interventions, while partnering with communities to build capacity and facilitate systems change to achieve sustainability and public health impact. Through this work we emphasize the development of implementation systems and training-technical assistance infrastructures for broader dissemination of evidence-based interventions. We believe that partnerships with communities are essential to creating positive, long-term outcomes for youth, adults, families and communities.

PPSI continually builds its network of collaborating scientists and practitioners, both nationally and internationally, to support its mission.
