About the Webinar
Understanding the implementation of behavior change interventions is critical to improving intervention effectiveness and informing dissemination efforts. However, evidence from rural-specific contexts remains limited. In this webinar, we will share findings from a mixed-methods process evaluation of a community-based cardiovascular disease prevention program for rural women: Strong Hearts, Healthy Communities.
