The RIA: Implement, Study, Refine and Disseminate involved concurrent project implementation and evaluative activities to refine the Reflection in Action: Building Healthy Communities (RIA) model for dissemination and replication. Located in the Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership (DICP), RIA was designed to inspire Boston and Cambridge, Mass. middle and high school students about individual and community health, and to translate these improvements into engagement in civic action. Simultaneous implementation and evaluative research significantly extended what is known about the conditions under which results and outcomes are produced by RIA. This study was funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
