Our first objective is to develop personalized behavioral interventions and produce new pieces of evidence. Our second objective is to develop behavioral interventions to implement evidence-based interventions (EBIs) nationwide reliably and quickly. This is a new area called implementation science. Implementation science focuses on the development of behavioral interventions for EBI providers. This is intended to promote the use of EBIs for people with limited access to healthcare and in communities with scarce medical resources. We also manage the National Center Consortium in Implementation Science for Health Equity (N-EQUITY) to promote clinical trials in these study areas.
