The Office of Disease Prevention will hold a Mind the Gap webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 1 p.m. with Dr. David Hopkins, who will discuss approaches to evidence synthesis in systematic reviews of public health interventions methods and the experiences of the community preventive services task force. The group develops guidance on community-based health promotion and disease prevention interventions using methodology developed by the CDC’s Community Guide Branch.

Hopkins is the medical officer with the branch. He joined the Community Guide in 1997 and has led systematic reviews of population-based interventions in tobacco prevention and control, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease prevention, physical activity promotion and immunizations. He will accept questions during the webinar via WebEx and Twitter. In the latter case, use #NIHMtG.
