HRSA: Life Course Research Network

Program Summary

Focused on improving the understanding of the socio-environmental determinants of health experienced at different life course stages for the maternal and child health (MCH) population through engagement of researchers, practitioners, policymakers and consumers in a collaborative, innovative, and multidisciplinary research project. The LCRN is designed to accelerate the translation of the life course theory to MCH practice and policy and foster its rapid adoption into clinical and public health practice through systems integration and collaboration with entities that have a common goal of improving MCH outcomes (e.g., Title V programs, state and local health departments, community safety net programs and other public health programs serving underserved communities).
