Family Voices Awarded Project to Fight Childhood Obesity by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute
Date:1/8/2014

Albuquerque, New Mexico (PRWEB) January 08, 2014

Childhood obesity is an ongoing epidemic with disproportionate impact on Native Americans and Spanish-speaking children.

This award is among the first to be made through PCORI’s new Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. These Tier I Pipeline to Proposal awards provide seed funds to encourage the development of partnerships and research project ideas among individuals and groups who want to take an active role in health research.

The funds will help Family Voices build relationships with other individuals and groups interested in childhood obesity. The funds will also help develop governance and guidance structures, such as an advisory council and strategic plan. PCORI hopes these foundational steps will eventually lead to topics and proposals for comparative effectiveness research studies.

"Family Voices is delighted to be a part of PCORI’s important work for patient-centered outcomes research," states Molly Cole, President of Family Voices. "Family Voices is committed to family-centered care approaches that lead to quality health care for children with
