The National Institute for Children’s Health Quality featured contributions from Ready Ready and Program Manager Michelle Chapin in its new brief, “Embedding Equity in Early Childhood Initiatives.” 

It’s part of a larger project entitled the Early Childhood Health Equity Landscape Project (ECHE.) The brief highlights how eight organizations, including Ready Ready, have set equitable goals and outcomes, received support from their communities, faced barriers, and have been impacted by factors such as COVID-19 and structural racism.

Child Trends is the nation’s leading research organization focused exclusively on improving the lives of children and youth, especially those who are most vulnerable, according to its website. North Carolina is one of 38 students studied by the group.
