Dr. Daniel EisenbergDr. Neal Halfon, and Dr. National Anderson of UCLA Fielding's Department of Health Policy and Management, Dr. Shirley Russ of David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA authored a research report titled Dashboards as Mechanisms for Community Empowerment: Developing a Prototype for Child and Adolescent Well-being in California, published in the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice. 


In recent years, stakeholders in public health have emphasized measuring young people's well-being as a more holistic and upstream approach to understanding their health and development. However, summarizing the available indicators of well-being in ways that strengthen ongoing policy and community efforts remains a challenge. Program: Our objective was to develop a measurement framework of young peoples' well-being that would be engaging and actionable to a broad and diverse set of stakeholders in California.
