OUR EVIDENCE

The iCARE Collaborative is hard at work building the evidence base for CARE and its extension programs. Below is a short list of our efforts specific to CARE to date. Continuing the pursuit of rigorous program evaluation is a team effort, and we thank all of our CARE Champions for their contributions. We will update the listing at least quarterly to provide the iCARE Community with ongoing resources.
