The Hallie E. Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families promotes the development and well-being of children, youth and families by generating, translating and sharing research-based knowledge. The center advocates a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to research, training and outreach that has far-reaching consequences for Oregon and beyond.
“Our work begins with passion and leads to life-changing results. The center generates, translates and shares research-based knowledge to improve the health and well-being of children and families.”
Director Megan McClelland.
The Center is organized into four Research Cores. These cores build on the existing strengths of the college and serve as catalysts for collaborative research activity that will lead the college to new prominence in advancing science and serving the needs of the public.
