Samantha M. Harden, PhD is an assistant professor of Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise at Virginia Tech. Her research explores factors that speed or impede the translation of evidence informed programs into sustained practice. Her training and expertise in the RE-AIM (reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, maintenance) framework guide her contributions to dissemination and implementation research: How do we ensure that evidence-based interventions fit the needs, values, and resources of the intended delivery system? To this end, she is the Principal Investigator of two community-based interventions that have been adapted, delivered, and evaluated throughout the Virginia Cooperative Extension System. For this meeting, she will describe contextual considerations for scaling skin cancer prevention programs.
