It is a journey that is best taken with the right equipment and with the right company. The Center for Children's Health journey is just beginning and will evolve over time. By providing a framework needed to tackle community issues, community members have tools and resources to initiate action.

Thanks for working to make a difference in the life of a child!

An Ecosystem model for children's health

Ecosystem models are used to understand complex systems, such as the health of children, where many parts are free agents and not predictable. Everyone within the system comes with their own ideas/agendas. The way the parts come together can't be controlled. While there is no recipe for a complex system, there are guidelines and lessons to be learned.
