About the Program

The Child Health Policy Program, part of the Center for Health and Biosciences, conducts original research that investigates the root causes of adverse health outcomes in children, with a focus on identifying interventions and policy solutions. The program approaches research with a solution-oriented, multi-disciplinary lens. Research projects often examine the interactions between social structure, neighborhoods, families and children. Collaborations and input from hospitals, nonprofits, communities and government agencies further the program’s goal of translating research findings into actionable solutions.
