We are thrilled to announce our international keynote speaker, Deborah Rubien, Senior Advisor for Evidence-Based Implementation at New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), the government agency responsible for child welfare, juvenile justice and subsidized child care in New York City.
Deborah Rubien coordinates a leadership team that works to sustain and integrate the implementation of eleven evidence-based and evidence-informed practice models in the ACS preventive service delivery system. She has been responsible for integrating the principles and practice of Implementation Science into all aspects of the initiative and serves as the liaison between ACS and the evidence-based model developers.
Symposium attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Deborah and learn about the New York City experience including the positive results so far, the challenges and lessons learned.
The 2018 OPEN Symposium will be a unique opportunity to engage with the best and most recent developments in evidence-informed practice across the sector, including hearing from practitioners, researchers and policy makers.
