KDHRC conducts rigorous research to explore complex social problems and construct powerful programs that improve the health and well-being of youth, families, and communities.
Dientes Fuertes, Vida Sana is a culturally competent training program that teaches promotores de salud (community health workers) to build Latino caregivers’ knowledge about how to prevent early childhood tooth decay and obtain dental care for their children.
CIU supports students with cochlear implants with self-advocacy training in their transition into higher education.
Despite a large effort in tobacco use control and prevention, youth tobacco use has remained steady since 2011. The FDA’s “The Real Cost” campaign reaches youth with persuasive anti-tobacco messages.
Parents and teachers of children with chronic illness face the burden of navigating the school system, securing school services, and easing the child’s frequent transitions into and out of school because of absences. Project PENCIL reduces this burden by increasing parents’ and teachers’ knowledge and ability to manage the educational needs of chronically ill children and advocate for school services with less stress and more confidence.
KDHRC offers a wealth of interdisciplinary capabilities. With expertise in research, evaluation, health science communication, and program development, KDHRC creates powerful programs to support the work of government, academia, nonprofit, faith-based, and community-based organizations.
