Improving children’s health
The Institute for Child Health Policy’s 2014 Highlighting Children’s Health Research Event on Nov. 4 brought together more than 100 faculty members, staff and students to discuss research findings, network and gather new ideas — all with the goal of improving children’s health. As the sun began to set behind the Clinical and Translational Research Building, Sarah Lynne-Landsman, Ph.D., center, an assistant professor of health outcomes and policy in the College of Medicine and Institute for Child Health Policy faculty member, discusses her research in the Cherokee Nation on the commercial availability of alcohol to youth who appear underage. The evening began with a series of speakers from ICHP and ended with a poster and networking reception, which featured children’s health research from seven colleges as well as 28 departments and units at UF and 18 organizations from across the U.S. and world.
