Research Center for Child Well-Being

The RCCWB supported by a Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence grant (P20GM130420) from the NIH National Institutes of General Medical Sciences conducts prevention research impacting the well-being of children ages 2 to 10, with the dual goal of (1) reducing risk for social, emotional, and behavioral problems and (2) decreasing unhealthy lifestyle behaviors.
