WHO WE ARE
The Center for Healthier Children, Families & Communities is a multidisciplinary, community-focused research, policy, and training center at UCLA. Established in 1996, we are a joint effort of the David Geffen School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. The Center also includes faculty from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Policy & Social Research, School of Law, and the College of Letters and Sciences.
Integrating expertise across disciplines ensures that the solutions we develop are theoretically sound and highly practical. We also partner with leading organizations across the country to create and spread forward-thinking ideas and strategies.
