Our Screen-Refer-Treat (SRT) research team traveled to Yakima this week to conduct our partnership meetings with participating primary care and early intervention providers in the county. These meetings were driven by lively discussions about data collection, family recruitment, and upcoming training workshops. In the photos below, Community Liaison Cindy Carroll and Research Assistant Roya Baharloo strike a pose outside of Children’s Village (the participating birth-to-3 program) and Lisa and Roya play the roles of provider and parent as they demonstrate one way to present the study to families who may be eligible to participate.
Fun fact: Besides being home to a booming wine-making industry, Yakima Valley is one of the leading producers of hops—a key ingredient in beer— in the entire world! Cheers!
