Information Dissemination Core

The Information Dissemination Core (IDC) repackages and broadly distributes research findings through an array of communication channels, informing patients, their families, primary care practices, community services, and healthcare policies. The IDC also actively solicits ideas and feedback from stakeholders to inform the development of new research projects and products.
