Recognizing that early life experiences of children and adolescents are central to shaping their long term health and well-being, the Center for Children & Families is dedicated to the promotion of children’s health through prevention and evidence-based intervention. Through innovative research and training initiatives, the center works to create social and physical environments that promote the health of individuals, families and communities. In partnership with health care providers and policy makers, the center builds knowledge to support access, equity and quality in health service delivery and outcomes.
