Group well child care: We study it's economic cost and the experiences of health care providers and parents. We are studying outcomes of parents and children at 12 months and ways to improve family nutrition through group well child care. 

Child Care: We are analyzing public health records of unannounced licensing visits to child care providers in Connecticut to assess ways in which the licensing process can be improved and inequities in quality of child care. In conjunction with All Our Kin, Inc, we are assessing differences in quality of family child care, given different supports.
