Co-sponsored by the UC Davis Center For Poverty Research

 

Childrens’ Developmental Health, Policies and Practices with Leah Hibel from UC Davis and Greg Duncan with UC Irvine. 

In light of California’s ACEs Aware Initiative, this session will provide academic research insights on policies that aim to improve children’s developmental health, and long term economic outcomes.

 

Health Care and Unauthorized Immigrant Children in California with Laura Wherry from UCLA and Heather Royer from UC Santa Barbara.

This session will provide a synthesis of research findings on the health care of unauthorized immigrant children and highlight new findings from a large scale prenatal care intervention that expanded Medicaid eligibility to pregnant undocumented immigrants

 

Parental Leave and Early Child Care with Jenna Stearns from UC Davis.

This session will discuss the effects of paid family leave on maternal and child health and the labor market outcomes of parents with a focus on evidence from California's Paid Family Leave program. Speakers will also discuss the effects of access to early-life childcare on children's health and development, and some issues surrounding inequality in access to high-quality childcare in the US.

 

Income Interventions and Child Health with Hilary Hoynes from UC Berkeley

The U.S. social safety net provides cash or near cash benefits that effectively raise family incomes and reduce child poverty. This session will focus on what we know about the effects of these programs on child health in the short and longer run, with particular emphasis on the health effects of the Earned income Tax Credit, cash welfare and Calfresh program.

 

Integrating Research and Policies with Elizabeth Linos from UC Berkeley and Hilary Seligman from UC San Francisco.

 

Following each session, join members of state government and public agencies to discuss current policy implications.
