IRIS prioritizes research capacity building to leverage the deep knowledge base held by our community partners, and to make academic resources more accessible. In our research corner, IRIS team members select emerging topics related to the opioid recovery support system and summarize articles in a way that helps translate academic knowledge into community action. IRIS also relates these topics to our own community-academic projects as an example of how we can implement scholarly learning into community practice.
