Program on Child Well-Being and Resilience
The Program on Child Well-Being and Resilience will serve as an academic center for Columbia University faculty and researchers, across various academic departments and schools, to support greater understanding of the issues, challenges, and opportunities involving children and youth. The program will benefit from an advisory board of individuals, experts and policy-makers from around New York City and across the nation.
Through research, dialogue, education and outreach, the PCWR will examine and highlight ways to overcome economic, educational, health, and other barriers facing children and create maximum opportunity for every childhood to be successful – and for every child to reach his or her full potential.
PCWR is based at the Earth Institute and directed by Irwin Redlener, MD, who also serves as director of EI’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness.
