With 2014 approaching, it is a good time to reflect on our research activities here at CMCH. Members of the CMCH team participated in a variety of activities surrounding research in 2013, including conducting original research; publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals; headlining talks and conferences; participating in roundtables; and providing expert testimonials on the state of the research. Here are some 2013 highlights from CMCH staff:

  • Julie Polvinen – co-conducted research for the Children’s At Home program, aimed to improve health-related outcomes for youth with Neurofibromatosis 1
