Implementation Learning Community (ILC)

The Implementation Learning Community (ILC) meetings bring together health center staff across the state of Massachusetts to network and collaborate among partner sites and participate in expert panels, presentations, small group discussions, case studies, and more. These community meetings focus on topics based on feedback from health center partners in priority areas that they highlight related to implementation science, health equity and cancer prevention. The ILCs are virtual and are held quarterly. We hope to bring the community together in-person soon.

If you have any questions about the ILC, please contact Maddie Davies.
