Bruno Sobral, director of the One Health Institute at Colorado State University, recently was invited to participate on the Science of Research panel during the Public-Academic Research Colloquium – Leveraging Administrative Data for Social Policy (PARC) Nov. 29-30 in Washington, D.C.
The opportunity allowed Sobral to meet and engage with people focused on integrated data systems to support quality of life, health, well-being, and evidence-based policy. His talk centered around collaboration across sectors, professions, and disciplines and shared work the One Health Institute is doing to facilitate such partnerships.
“Since so much of the One Health conversation is about creating change at community and/or policy levels, I was delighted to have a seat at this broad discussion about bridging data and policy,” says Sobral. “I look forward to talking more and doing even more to help advance health through these connections and conversations.”
PARC was organized by University of Pennsylvania’s Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy, the Social and Decision Analytics Lab at Virginia Tech (National Capital Region), The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab at Harvard, and the Administrative Data Research Network in the United Kingdom.
