The Implementation Science Center for Cancer Control Equity (ISCCCE) is an NIH-funded center grant with principle investigators at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health and Massachusetts General Hospital. As part of the center grant, the ISCCCE team is developing an Implementation Laboratory (I-Lab) of community health centers across Massachusetts to increase implementation science in community health settings, enable a range of studies on the adoption and implementation of cancer prevention and control strategies, and allow for rapid-cycle testing of innovative approaches in settings that serve populations with health disparities. The Implementation lab is partnering with the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers (Mass League), a robust primary care association in Massachusetts the Data Reporting and Visualization System (DRVS), to inform and evaluate implementation and quality improvement activities.
