Children’s HealthWatch, a division of the Boston Medical Center, works to improve child health by bringing evidence and analysis from pediatric care to policymakers and the public. As an extension of prior research funded through the Foundation’s How Housing Matters research initiative, this grant supports research examining how maternal and child homelessness in the pre- and postnatal period affects child health outcomes and short-term health costs. The grant will be used to conduct analysis, disseminate findings, and develop a dataset integrating survey data into an electronic health record data repository allowing for future analysis of long-term health outcomes.
