What does your organization do?
Children’s HealthWatch was established in 1998 to monitor child health effects of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act. The original project revealed a strong need for clinical research around child health and nutrition. Over time, we developed a unique niche as a source of both scientific research and informed, non-partisan policy analysis in this field. Led by a national network of pediatricians and public health researchers, the center collects data and produces original, timely research to inform policy decisions that prevent child hunger and promote children’s health.
Why is Children’s HealthWatch involved with Project 55?
Princeton Project 55 provides us with a great worker at a low cost. Our lean organization appreciates the addition of a wonderful, cost-effective employee. It is exciting to have a bright young person who initially knows very little about our work come in and gain a confidence and mastery of their job day by day. There is great pleasure in watching a fellow get their hands around the exciting new work and opportunities at Children’s HealthWatch.
