Cincinnati Children’s 2020 strategic plan mission aims to improve child health and transform delivery of care by fully integrating research, education and innovation. The Health Services Research Collaborative (HSRC) Speaker Series at Cincinnati Children’s provides an educational program featuring world-renowned researchers, faculty and business leaders sharing innovative ideas and concepts in health services research to be able to improve health outcomes for patients and families.  We continue to foster the development of relationships across public and private sectors in order to speed the translation of new ideas and evidence into practice.
