Vanessa Fry Presents to RAND Corporation

On September 10, IPI Interim Director, Dr. Vanessa Fry, presented to RAND Corporation’s Justice Policy Program. In her talk, Facilitating Evidence-based Decisions in Idaho, Dr. Fry described how leaders across Idaho have utilized IPI’s objective research to inform policies and practices regarding transportation, housing, and economic development.

In recent months Dr. Fry has worked closely with RAND Justice Policy Program staff to submit a National Science Foundation Civic Innovation Challenge (CIVIC) proposal focused on enabling equitable access to housing, job opportunities, health care, and education through catalyzing user-innovators. The collaborators are currently working on a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation proposal aimed at advancing health equity.
