Preface

We are delighted to welcome you to the  interactive Browsable Agenda of the 7th  Conference on Understanding Interventions.  This conference marked a new epoch in the movement of this growing community.   Understanding Interventions—the practice of interventions, of scholarship, and of policy implementation—requires a combination of expertise and experience. Our unity of purpose can only be attained through an exchange of knowledge across boundaries of “difference” in disciplines, cultures, and organizations.

The program featured a variety of topics and formats under the umbrella of “Translating Research, Impacting Practice.” Through 10 workshops, four plenary sessions, more than a dozen symposia, and over 40 poster presentations, science interventions were examined.  The 7th Understanding Interventions conference launched the next phase in the community’s collaborations to discover, synthesize, fill gaps, and assist those renewing the science workforce through inventive programs of research, education, and training. Browse summaries of each workshop, plenary, and symposium, and enjoy video highlights of the plenary presentations.

Thank you for joining us in San Diego.
