Wayne Beach, PhD

April 20, 2017: IUPUI Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP) Keynote Address featuring Wayne Beach, PhD, School of Communication, San Diego State University

"When Cancer Calls... A 'Triggering Device' for Improving the Quality of Communication & Living in the Midst of Cancer"

Dr. Wayne A. Beach is a professor in the San Diego State University School of Communication, adjunct professor in the Department of Surgery at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, and member of the Moores Cancer Center at University of California San Diego Health. He discussed his unique journey of translating research on family cancer telephone calls into a multidisciplinary and professional theatrical production, When Cancer Calls…, that creates a new genre for Entertainment-Education and health communication campaigns. Dr. Beach is widely known for his foundational work exploring the first natural history of a family’s cancer communication journey from diagnosis to end-of-life. Based on his research findings, Dr. Beach believed it was imperative to make these powerful materials available to all citizens whose lives have somehow been touched by cancer. Since 2006 more than 5000 persons have experienced When Cancer Calls... as an evolving ‘triggering device’ for meaningful reflections and conversations about the trials, tribulations, hopes, and triumphs of cancer.

March 30, 2015: IUPUI Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP) Keynote Address featuring Michael Hecht, PhD

Michael Hecht Michael Hecht, PhD

"Coming to the new D.A.R.E."

Dr. Hecht presented Coming to the new D.A.R.E. on Monday, March 30, 2015 in the IUPUI Campus Center.

The presentation addressed critical questions about a well known, long standing alcohol and drug prevention program used in schools: What is the new D.A.R.E. being taught in Indiana, across the nation, and around the world? Has it overcome controversies swirling around the program to reach a new generation of youth? How has it changed – what is this new and improved curriculum being taught to a new generation of our youth?

For over 30 years, the D.A.R.E. program, designed to teach students good decision making skills to help them lead safe and responsible lives, has been a dominant influence in the lives of our nation’s youth. Since its inception in Los Angeles in 1983, the program has placed police officers in classrooms to prevent drug use and violence. Each year D.A.R.E. officers reach thousands of U.S. youth as well as those in 47 countries around the world. However, almost from the beginning controversies arose about the effectiveness in the program. After an exhaustive review of all effective prevention programs, keepin’ it REAL was adopted by D.A.R.E. America as the new middle school curriculum in 2009 and then as the new elementary curriculum in 2013. So, what is this new partnership among an evidence-based curriculum created and evaluated by academics, the field experience of D.A.R.E.’s officers and educators, local police, and schools? Can these diverse groups collaborate effectively in order to contribute to the development of safe and responsible youth? What makes this program unique and how does it differ from previous versions of D.A.R.E.? Dr. Michael Hecht, one of the creators of keepin’ it REAL , discussed how his team collaborated with D.A.R.E., local police, and schools to develop something new and different.

Michael Hecht (PhD, University of Illinois) is a Distinguished Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences at Penn State University and President of REAL Prevention, LLC. He is the co-creator of the evidence-based keepin’ it REAL substance use prevention curriculum for elementary and middle school students that, since its adoption by D.A.R.E. America, is the most widely disseminated substance use prevention program in the world. The curriculum is a translation of theory and research on culture (the principle of cultural grounding), health message design (narrative engagement theory), and interpersonal relationships through community-based research processes. Dr. Hecht’s other projects focus on using interactive video games for sex education, narrative HPV vaccination promotion, and media literacy. In addition to D.A.R.E., collaborators include Planned Parenthood, the 4H Clubs of America, as well as organizations in Nicaragua where his company is involved in adolescent health promotion. Dr. Hecht’s work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, US AID, and the Nemours Foundation among others.

"Speeding the Clinical Translation of Discovery"

This annual address featured IU School of Medicine Dean Jay Hess, one of the nation’s leaders in epigenetics of leukemia. In his address, ‘Speeding the Clinical Translation of Discovery,’ Dr. Hess shared some of his experiences in early stage drug discovery in academia and in establishing sequencing-based diagnostics to improve care for cancer patients. As the genetic abnormalities that underlie cancer are being defined, new opportunities arise to develop more targeted and effective therapies, however bottlenecks remain in clinical translation. Dr. Hess became the 10th Dean of the IU School of Medicine (IUSM) and Vice President for University Clinical Affairs at Indiana University on September 1st, 2013. He joined IUSM after eight years at the University of Michigan, where he made major strides in advancing translational research, pathology informatics and sequencing-based diagnostics.
