Workshop on child health services research to be held in Atlanta in June

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is the primary sponsor of the third annual child health services researchers meeting, which will be held June 9, from 10 am to 6 pm, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, GA. The meeting is intended to bring together junior and senior investigators in child health services research (CHSR) and to attract State and local policymakers interested in accessing new data from CHSR initiatives. The four themes of the meeting are:

  • Skill building.
  • Research and State health policy.
  • Quality measurement and improvement.
  • Cost, use, and access.

A new award will be presented at the meeting to recognize an emerging scholar in CHSR who has worked on topics relevant to low income urban children with special needs. Nominations for the award are due April 6.

The other meeting cosponsors are the American Academy of Pediatrics, the HSC Foundation, the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions, and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
