Research Projects to Improve Healthcare for Children in Foster and Kinship Care

The CHECK Center is involved in several research projects designed to improve the health and delivery of care for our patients and families. Research includes:

  • An initiative to support teens as they become more responsible for their own health and healthcare, I Care 2 CHECK
  • Study of the impact of having a dental resident co-located in the CHECK Center and whether this assists families with oral care for their children
  • How to efficiently deliver mental health services to children in the context of a clinic visit, particularly for children experiencing delayed access to services in other arenas

For more information about the research being conducted in the CHECK Center, contact Mary Greiner, MD, or Sarah Beal, PhD.
