Many thanks to the 256 folk who participated in the August 19th Division H/REL-Mid-Atlantic webinar which focused on Conducting Implementation-Informed Evaluations: Practical Applications and Lessons from Implementation Science.  

Caryn Ward did a wonderful job of tearing down that third wall that sometimes separates the participants from the presenter in webinar presentations and energetically shared a wide range of material.  Thanks Caryn for leading the webinar!

Teresa Duncan and REL-Mid-Atlantic really know how to put appealing webinar topics together and this webinar was another hit for them!  Thanks for being wonder collaborators and excellent organizers.

To Rolf Blank, our Division H Professional Development Coordinator, congratulations on achieving another home run!  So what’s next!?

Cheers all!

Zollie Stevenson, Jr., Ph.D.

AERA Division H Vice President
