The Meadows Institute is continuing our 2021 Speaker Series with our sixth webinar event on Implementation Science: Building Financially Sustainable Programs: How Financing & Fundraising Work Together. During this event, Melissa Rowan will discuss ways organizations can evaluate billing opportunities—including the knowledge and infrastructure you need to start billing. Cindy Patrick will discuss how philanthropic funds can best support your efforts, as well as highlight the types of initiatives and projects that foundations typically support.

ABOUT THE 2021 SPEAKER SERIES

Implementing Evidence-Based Practices for Children, Youth, & Families

Throughout 2021, the Meadows Institute will welcome experts in implementation science, evidence-based practices, health equity, financing, and more to help Texas mental health providers deepen their understanding of how to roll-out and sustain best practices in mental health.

While many of these principles can be applied to a broad population, we will focus on evidence-based practice implementation efforts targeting children, youth, and their families. If you’ve ever wondered what makes some initiatives take hold and others slowly fade away, you’ll want to mark your calendar for these events.

Information on both upcoming and past events is available on the series project page. See our Events page for details and registration of upcoming events.
