K12 IMPACT Update

June 2021

The Co-Directors of the K12 IMPACT (IMPlementation to Achieve Clinical Transformation) Training Program in Dissemination and Implementation Science would like to highlight the accomplishments of the nine scholars we’ve trained to date: Drs. Meredith Fort, Jason Mansoori, Anna Maw, Anuj Mehta, Nee-Kofi Mould-Millman, Matthew Simpson, Amy Tyler, Katy Trinkley and Nicole Wagner.  Drs. Mehta, Mould-Millman and Tyler all graduated from the program early in 2019 upon becoming independently funded through an R-level or K award, and Drs. Fort, Maw and Simpson will complete the program at the end of this month.

Since beginning their training in the 2018, 2019, or 2020 cohorts, all nine scholars have been remarkably successful. As one example, our three scholar graduates have gone on to secure $8,347,653 as principal investigators on federally funded grants. In addition to grant dollars and a number of conference presentations and accepted abstracts, since starting the program our nine trainees have collectively had 64 manuscripts accepted in peer-reviewed journals, 23 of which are first author publications. Our six scholars currently enrolled in the program have an additional 13 papers in revise and resubmit, under review or planned status, 10 of which are first author manuscripts.  We are so proud of all nine of our stellar trainees and all they have accomplished; we look forward to seeing how their professional careers unfold and how they continue to advance the field of dissemination and implementation science in their respective content areas!
