Enola Proctor, PhD

Network Unit Lead

Enola Proctor’s teaching and research are motivated by the question, how do we ensure that people receive the very best possible care?  In social work, public health, and health care settings ranging from hospitals to community agencies, she studies the processes through which organizations and individual providers can adopt and deliver the most effective programs and interventions.  Her research and training programs through the Center for Mental Health Services Research have been funded continuously by the National Institute of Mental Health since 1993.

Proctor leads several national initiatives to advance the science of dissemination and implementation research, in addition to the NIMH funded Implementation Research Institute (IRI).  She advises the World Health Organization training initiatives in implementation science for neglected tropical diseases of poverty.
