Policy (federal, state, local, organizational) has enormous potential to improve social well-being and health yet the current political environment can make science-based policy challenging. This workshop will provide a backdrop on evidence-based policy, including the key elements (process, content, outcomes) and considerations beyond academic impact. It will help participants to understand the importance of effective communication to address policy issues. Scholars will be challenged to consider their place along a continuum of advocacy. Tools and resources will be provided for scholars seeking to broaden their impact and more effectively disseminate their research to policy-related audiences.
