Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Research Network

Associate Name: Anne Duggan

Funding Source/Period of the Grant: HRSA UD5MC24070 07/01/12-06/30/16


The over-arching goal is to establish a solid home visiting re-search network (HVRN) infrastructure with active participation of a) nationally recognized home visiting researchers and research educators; and b) the stakeholder groups who use such research in policy and program decision-making. Toward this goal, we will achieve 5 objectives:
1. Develop and disseminate a national research agenda to strengthen home visiting;
2. Advance the development and use of innovative methods to carry out this agenda;
3. Develop and promote the use of approaches to data sharing to carry out this agenda;
4. Disseminate research findings to advance their translation into policy and practice; and
5. Support the professional development of emerging home visiting researchers.
