A growing demand for the uptake of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) that meet the needs of diverse populations has resulted in the adoption of community-engaged research in dissemination and implementation (D&I) studies. The integration of these two paradigms shows potential for the effective diffusion of EBIs in real-world settings. Yet, more work is needed to fully optimize the benefits of this combined approach. In this seminar, I will highlight the community-engaged and implementation science approach I utilized in feasibility studies for social needs screening and cardiovascular disease management interventions. Implementation strategies and recommendations were tailored to the needs of urban, minority and immigrant communities, and relied heavily on the specific context and community input. I will conclude with my vision to advance implementation science applications in health equity research across Northwestern University. I hope to enhance current community engagement activities and foster new D&I research collaborations with a multi-year research plan.
