  • Multidisciplinary research on health care financing and delivery systems, health care quality, and outcomes of care.
  • Innovative evaluation research on public programs and policies.
  • Training and mentoring of students, faculty and scientists in child and adolescent health research.
  • Leadership in interpreting and disseminating research results to policy-makers and the public.
