"From Bench to Bedside: Changing Practice and Saving Lives"

Presented by

Amy Goldberg, MD, Chair, Department of Surgery, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Using his group’s national and international studies of built environments and physical activity, Dr. Sallis will describe the growth of policy-oriented research that is highly interdisciplinary in nature. He will provide a summary of what has been learned as well as related policy recommendations. He will emphasize the need, and propose several options, for translating research to practice and policy, drawing from a newly-published model. The talk will end with evidence that physical activity research is making an impact on policy and practice.

Mayda Colón and Zayra Taranto, founders of Trabalis Editores, will speak about their singular approach to publishing in Puerto Rico (they own their own printing press and use the royalties ceded by their world renown authors to publish new writers). In the aftermath of Hurricane María they organized several readings and published a series of books of historical importance (Bitácora de una transmisión radial, transcripciones de una histórica transmisión radial durante el Huracán María desde Wapa radio, Sandra Rodríguez Cotto; Huracanada, Mayra Santos-Febres, amongst others).

Over the next few years, the Latin American Writers Series will showcase the most representative writers  of the continent and serve as an archive of their achievements.  Ecuadorian writer and Tulane’s Greenleaf Scholar-in-Residence,  Gabriela Alemán will conduct in-depth interviews with authors that address  a territory defined by massive migrations, multiple forms of violence, economic precariousness and environmental struggles.
