The Future of Families and Child Wellbeing Study and Opportunities
to Study Multiple Dimensions of Health
Tuesday, September 26, 2023
Zoom | 1–2 pm ET
with Sarah Pachman, PhD
Dr. Sarah Pachman is the Director of Research and Policy at Princeton University’s Bendheim-Thoman Center for Research on Child and Family Wellbeing. She earned her PhD in Social Work at Rutgers University. Her research aims to understand the relationship between childhood contexts – primarily experiences of economic and housing hardship and exposure to proximate neighborhood conditions – and adolescent wellbeing and how policies may serve as levers to mitigate potentially adverse conditions. Sarah will give a brief overview of the core Future of Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS), a longitudinal birth cohort study that has followed families for nearly a quarter century. She will review available survey and collaborative datasets including biological indicators and medical records. She will provide a summary of analyses that use these data to examine the physical and mental health of mothers and their children using the various components of the FFCWS.
