LCIRN Year 2 in Review

Project Year 2 (Sept 2019 – Aug 2020) started out as planned for the Life Course Intervention Research Network (LCIRN), with 35 collaborators gathering in Los Angeles for the first all-network meeting in November 2019. This meeting laid the foundation for development of a life course intervention research agenda, and kicked off the work of our initial research nodes (Family Health, Schools, Early Childhood Mental Health). 

As it did for so many, the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 required us to rethink both our methods and our priorities. We quickly shifted most of our activities to virtual formats and opened up our pilot and feasibility funds to COVID-related projects. We also took a step back and realized that the seismic shifts caused by the pandemic left an opening for transformations to how we think about wellbeing and intervene to improve kids’ lives.
