This past year brought groundbreaking research from FPG with implications for children and families in North Carolina, across the United States, and around the globe. Our studies capitalize on FPG’s wide and varied expertise to generate knowledge about how best to educate and care for children and their families.This science has addressed numerous urgencies.
Beyond conducting research, FPG actively contributes knowledge and expertise to enhance the lives of children and their families. Because scientific study drives positive outcomes for children and families only when evidence-based practices see successful implementation, support, and maintenance, many scientists at FPG also have dedicated much of their service to traversing that well-known valley between research and practical application.
These stories sample some of the many initiatives from FPG designed to generate knowledge, heighten awareness, and marry evidence-based practices and programs with real-world solutions for children and families.
