Health Impacts of Mass Incarceration on Indiana’s Children; Promoting Social, Emotional & Developmental Health & Well-Being in Early Childhood
PROJECT SUMMARY: Our research will investigate the impact of mass incarceration on the social, emotional, and developmental health and long-term health equity of Indiana’s young children. The project will also explore the health benefits of expanding access to quality pre-k for children from low-income communities of color impacted by over-incarceration.
