Connecting evidence and practice to improve health equity

The Implementation Science Core (ISC) supports implementation science projects within the Penn State community. Implementation science is the connecting bridge that brings evidence-based interventions into the real-world setting. The ISC strives to increase the adoption, integration, and sustainability of evidence-based practices into real-world resource-constrained settings to improve health equity.
