Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop 2015

Wednesday June 17th-Friday, June 19th, 2015
Columbia School of Social Work, 1255 Amsterdam Avenue @ 122nd St.

The Columbia Population Research Center will host the Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop on June 17-19, 2015 at Columbia School of Social Work in New York City. The workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, a national study following a birth cohort of (mostly) unmarried parents and their children, providing information about the capabilities, circumstances, and relationships of unwed parents, the wellbeing of their children, and the role of public policy in family and child wellbeing. 

The 2015 workshop will include special sections on the newly available genetic data in the Fragile Families Study, and the use of Fragile Families in examining gene-environment interactions in child development and adult wellbeing. The workshop is targeted toward early-career scholars from social and biomedical science disciplines.

The Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop 2015 is made possible by Grant Number 5 R25 HD074544 from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
