R2R is Looking Ahead to a Productive 2014!
- Research to Reality (R2R), saw great growth in 2013. We are heading into 2014 1,700 members strong and draw from a wide range of cancer control practitioners and researchers, students, and other public health professionals. By cultivating close linkages with the Research Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) website and researchers and the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership, we will continue to highlight programs and spark conversations on a myriad of topics of interest to the R2R community. We hope to continue these efforts and encourage lively discussion and would welcome new participants to our vibrant community where members are encouraged to tell others about a new project and/or useful tool; ask questions of fellow community members; or highlight some of your successes (and maybe some lessons learned from “less successful” endeavors). We look forward to hearing from you in the new year.

The program is designed to promote healthy dietary habits to reduce obesity. The intervention programmatic materials are available through the program website.
