Team

The CEBI team consists of an advisory committee and program staff.  The CEBI Advisory Committee represents key stakeholder groups, specifically HHS administrators, clinicians, implementation scientists, and a health economist. Members advise on the prioritization framework, governance structures, and key directions of CEBI. The program staff collaborates with other HHS stakeholders, and well as McMaster University graduate students with an interest in implementation science, to carry out the various CEBI projects.
