A defining feature of children’s health in the US is the tremendous disparity by race and ethnicity, under-cutting the goal of providing all children with equal opportunities for success. The October 2020 issue of Health Affairs explores children’s health and provides a road map for future improvement. On Wednesday, October 21 Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil hosts a panel of authors to discuss their scholarly contributions to this issue. See more information here
Welcome Message from CYSHCNet Director
Welcome to the CYSHCNet homepage! We hope you will find the information here useful. CYSHCNet was born in 2017 and is growing fast! We are a national group of child health systems researchers, families and youth, clinician partners, national organizations, and others interested in doing coordinated work to assess and improve health systems for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). An important part of our work is dedicated to supporting the next generation of CYSHCN health systems researchers, and all of our work includes families and youth as partners in each project.
Here you will find information about our who we are, our national research agenda, projects in progress, results of our research, and resources to support CYSHCN researchers and family/youth partners who work with us. Details of the national research agenda continue to evolve, and new study information is constantly becoming available. Check back here often for updates!
