Article Title: The CIS model for collaborative research in health communications: A brief retrospective from the current generation of research
Abstract: The Cancer Information Service (CIS) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is the premiere organization for providing cancer information to the nation. The CIS provides a stellar example of how a service organization dedicated to health communications also can serve as a laboratory for research. This journey by the CIS into health communication research is described briefly, along with the current generation of research summarized in this issue of the Journal of Health Communication (JHC). The CIS model for collaborative research is presented as an exemplar that other service organizations might embrace as a strategic tool for quality improvement in health communications.
