Today, meet IUPUI faculty who are making discoveries about how dogs detect explosives, how to improve communication about chronic pain care, how to better reintegrate displaced workers, and how to prevent hypoglycemia while driving by attending the Translating Research into Practice (TRIP) Community Showcase, 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the IUPUI Campus Center, Room 450. Join us for refreshments and learn how our own faculty are making a difference in people’s lives—every day.

This year’s TRIP Community Showcase features 10 translational scholars from across campus who will discuss their work and how it translates into better policies and practices that improve the welfare of individuals and communities. The TRIP initiative that Professor Sandra Petronio and I launched in 2007 highlights features of IUPUI that are truly distinctive to, and pervasive within, IUPUI’s academic culture:

•Practice based education
•Evidence-based practice
•Community-responsive academic programs
•Ethic of civic engagement
•Commitment to economic development and quality of life.
•Dedication to continuous quality improvement through dissemination of best practices

It did not take Sandra and me long to figure out that one of the most compelling messages we could take to the public about IUPUI is the quality and extensiveness of translational research here. That was our purpose in launching the TRIP initiative.

To learn more, visit the TRIP web site, where you can:

•Identify yourself as a TRIP scholar
•See what other translational scholars are discovering
•Keep up with TRIP events
