Never has the time been so critical to focus more on how to turn research into public health promotion and practice. It is time to clarify what the research data is telling us and how does that translate into what we need to do in public health. Recently at CDC’s Division of HIV AIDS Prevention, CDC required that presentations had to highlight how research informed or impacted public health practice. To solve our nation’s and world’s problems, we need research to be well linked and translated into practice.
