OUR

VISION

Use our talents, expertise, and passion to serve others.

We accomplish this through evidence-based adaptations, training, and evaluation to ensure the best fit intervention is adopted and sustained within practice settings.

OUR

VALUES

Respect and love for one another and all living beings, and using goodness to guide our scientific inquiry.

We demonstrate our commitment to these values through

  1. Vulnerability and resiliency. Acknowledging and embracing when we don’t know the answer… . We ask questions, early and often.

  2. Flexibility and humor. Remembering that nothing is perfect, but we commit ourselves to our efforts.

  3. Appreciation of excellence in effort. Offer insight to each other to bring out quality in work (feedback on slides, elevator pitch, papers, etc.).

  4. Stability. Mentor those less senior in the lab and seek mentorship from those more senior in the lab. Ensure adequate resource allocation (time, money, personnel).

  5. Clear, honest communication, complete with active listening.
