After a year of listening to my colleagues in other libraries rave about their blogs, I decided it was time for CMCH to join the crowd. Welcome to our brand-new blog!
The Center on Media and Child Health is a project of Children’s Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard School of Public Health. We are an interdisciplinary research group dedicated to investigating the effects of all kinds of media (television, video games, magazines, the Internet, etc.) on children’s mental, physical and social health. Our group is small but full of enthusiasm and a collaborative spirit! To learn more about us, please visit our website: www.cmch.tv
On this blog, I will post stories related to media and child health — news from CMCH as well as news from around the country and the world about scientific research and other current events that may impact the study of this important topic.
