It begins with a two-week workshop held at PRB, during which participants learn about how research influences the policy process and how to communicate research effectively. During the 2015-2016 academic year, participants will prepare several policy-oriented written products, one of which they will present at a workshop prior to the 2016 Population Association of America (PAA) Annual Meeting.
