Experts from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine’s Department of Health Policy and Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education and Human Development are joining efforts to establish a Policies for Action (P4A) Research Hub at Vanderbilt to better understand and develop recommendations to address the needs of some of Tennessee’s most vulnerable children, including those in immigrant families and with prenatal exposure to opioids.

The hub will be led by co-principal investigators Melinda Buntin, PhD, Mike Curb Professor and Chair of the Department of Health Policy at VUMC, and Carolyn Heinrich, PhD, Patricia and Rodes Hart Professor of Public Policy, Education and Economics at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education and Human Development.

It is funded by a $1.25 million, 2.5-year grant from Policies for Action (P4A), a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the largest national philanthropy dedicated to public health.
