About Us

The mission of PolicyLab at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is to achieve optimal child health and well-being by informing program and policy changes through interdisciplinary research.

PolicyLab develops evidence-based solutions for the most challenging health-related issues affecting children. As part of our commitment to transform “evidence to action,” we bridge the gap between academic communities and the real world by engaging in research that is both responsive to community needs and relevant to policy priorities. This approach requires that PolicyLab projects involve investigators, practitioners, policymakers, and families throughout the research process, from design to dissemination. By partnering with numerous stakeholders in traditional healthcare and other community locations, we identify the programs, practices, and policies that support the best outcomes for children and their families.
