Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been the director of NFIMR program - the designated resource center for the 220 FIMR programs in 40 states since 1994 and the author of the definitive resource manual for implementing the FIMR process. When I began in 1994 there were only ~45 projects We began to have conference calls w/ DR Lu in 2010 about incorporating life course theory into FIMR. This presentation will discuss success to date.
