FRI Researcher Receives Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Award for Project Evaluation

FRI is pleased to announce that Dr. Shannon Gwin Mitchell will lead the evaluation of the National Council for Behavioral Health’s FaCES (Facilitating Change for Excellence in SBIRT) project. Funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, FaCES will assemble a team of national experts to develop a standardized implementation model – or a “change package” – for Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for adolescent-serving primary care practices with a particular focus on Federally Qualified Health Centers. After developing the change package, the National Council will launch an SBIRT learning collaborative to test the effectiveness of the change package in primary care practices.
