“Innovation Toward Precision Home Visiting”
Plenary Session presented at the Eighth National Summit on Quality in Home Visiting Programs. The session featured Anne Duggan, Brenda Jones Harden, Allison Kemner and Kathy Pillow-Price.

2018 Methods Meeting
The HARC Methods Meeting brought together national methods experts and home visiting experts to consider how innovative methods can be used to achieve precision home visiting. The meeting was designed to be an efficient way for attendees to learn about innovative research methods to advance precision home visiting, to consider how what is learned might be used in future work, and to connect with others whose work is helping to shape the field.
