Why HSR?

"AcademyHealth’s mission calls us to work with our members to support the production and use of evidence. For me, that means answering the question of how we communicate evidence in ways that make it more likely to be understood and valued. How do we, collectively, continue to identify the right audiences, establish trust, and provide information that is timely and relevant to their questions? What are the implications for communicating evidence in highly polarized times? And how can we document and disseminate these lessons for the greatest benefit of our members? These are critical questions we’re exploring with our team, and through the Translation and Dissemination Institute."
