Lead: Dr. Michael Kobor

Our overarching goal is to keep children and families healthy and out of the hospital by preventing lifelong health challenges and chronic diseases that are rooted in early childhood. We are passionate about furthering research into how a child’s family life and environment impacts their health, shedding light on healthy childhood development before and after birth, and improving child health worldwide through innovation, advocacy, education and capacity building.
