Policy Matters

Jan 24, 2018

There are approximately 74 million children in the United States — 21 percent of whom live in families with incomes below the federal poverty threshold. What can we do to ensure that these children start out in life healthy and ready to succeed in school?

In this episode, Quianta Moore, Baker Institute fellow in child health policy, discusses empirically based policies to advance the health of children. She also discusses child health across socioeconomic lines and her recent work as a part of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Task Force on Equity. The task force report can be found here.
