George L. Jackson, Ph.D., MHA is a healthcare epidemiologist and implementation scientist with the Center of Innovation to Accelerate Discovery and Practice Transformation (also known as ADAPT) at the Durham Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care System, where he leads the Implementation and Improvement Science Lab/Core.  Additionally, he is a Professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences, Department of Medicine (Division of General Infernal Medicine), and Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at Duke.  He also co-teaches evidence-based practice for the Duke Physician Assistant Program.  George’s research focuses on the development, implementation, and evaluation of team-based systems for treatment and prevention of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and moral injury.  He also works to develop and evaluate structures to identify, replicate, and spread innovative practices within learning health systems.  He has collaborated closely with a number of healthcare systems such as the VA, Duke, and DoD with the goal of linking research and quality improvement.  Among other projects, George is currently the corresponding principal investigator of the VA Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI) funded Dynamic Diffusion Network (DDN) QUERI Program and Spreading Healthcare Access, Activities, Research and Knowledge (SHAARK) Partnered Evaluation Initiative.
