Promising Practices Panel

The Promising Practices Expert Panel will insure that the Center’s research findings and associated publications are interpreted and used to inform professionals, practitioners, and policy makers. In particular, it is the interest of the Center to generate knowledge from its research that can be applied to policy and to in-the-field practice. This Panel will provide important perspective for that purpose.
