UCD Economics Professor Marianne Page Leads Network on Poverty to win UC Multicampus Research Award

Marianne Page, Professor of Economics at UC Davis, will lead a team of experts from UC Davis, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara and UCSF to form a UC Network on Child Health, Poverty and Public Policy. The goal of their project is to understand how health and nutrition programs affect the health and development of disadvantaged children, as well as to make their findings accessible to policymakers and the general public.

Under Professor Page's leadership, the network won a $150,000 grant under the UC Multicampus Research Programs and Initiatives (MPRI)to shift from fragmented, discipline-specific approaches of studying childhood disparities to a multidisciplinary, comprehensive examination of the issue.
