Join NC TraCS and the Center for AIDS Research for the Spring 2021 edition of the Implementation Science Speaker Series, featuring Carolyn Audet, PhD, Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Epidemiology and Assistant Director of Community Based Implementation Research at Vanderbilt University.

Finally, Audet will share about the benefits of creating strong relationships with study communities and the obligations researchers have to their in-country partners.
