Jaime Hughes, PhD, MPH, MSW, Medical Instructor, Department of Population Health Sciences

Evidence-based health promotion programs, including those targeting sleep and activity, can enhance older adults' functional capacity and ability to age in place. As the number of older adults continues to grow, demand for these programs is expected to rise significantly. Using an existing, evidence-based geriatric sleep intervention as a model, this presentation will discuss some challenges and considerations when pursuing implementation research within aging programs and populations.

Dr. Susan "Nicki" Hastings, Director, Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care, Durham VA Medical Center & Professor of Medicine and Population Health Sciences, Duke University) will be participating as a discussant.
