Betsy Wells, PhD, Co-PI for Research in the PNW Node and our representative on the Research Utilization Committee (RUC), has been elected chair of the RUC for the 2011-2012 term.  Members of the RUC facilitate adoption of CTN-tested and successful interventions within the CTN;  facilitate sharing of cost effective dissemination strategies among Nodes, Blending Teams, and Federal and State partners; assist nodes in developing internal dissemination projects and developing partnerships for internal dissemination; tracks and describes dissemination activities within the CTN;  promote dissemination research using CTN as a platform;  and report to CTN Executive Committee.   The CTN Dissemination Library works closely with the RUC,  so we’re doubly lucky to have Betsy in this key position within the Clinical Trials Network. Congratulations, Betsy!
