Prevention & Implementation Modeling

Uri and I have been collaborating with Hendricks Brown who runs the Feinberg School’s Center for Prevention and Implementation Methodology (CePIM) on building models of various prevention programs. Recently the CCL, CePIM and Northwestern’s Institute for Complex Systems (NICO) started a collaboration in extension of this work. We are currently in the process of applying for funding to further expand on this collaboration.
