Our Story

KDH Research & Communication crafts effective solutions to public health problems. We undergird every solution with a deep understanding of complex information and systems taken from the scientific literature, audience characteristics, research methodologies, social structures, technology, and organizational behavior. KDHRC transforms this rigorous research into messages and programs that change behavior and improve the health and well-being of youth, families, and communities.

We focus our work in four areas:

  • Drug abuse education and prevention
  • Latino health
  • Vulnerable populations
  • Organizational studies

Our record of successful partnerships, completed programs, and published research demonstrates positive change in communities nationwide. Founded in 2006 by Dr. Kristen D. Holtz, KDHRC has a long history of successful programs with multiple funders.
