Community and Program Evaluation
Creating Stronger Pathways to Infant Vitality through Participant Research (Stronger Pathways)
CRD has partnered with the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio (HCNO) and ProMedica Health Systems to implement Stronger Pathways, a research study to assess avenues for targeted enhancement to the Northwest Ohio Pathways HUB, a coordinated care system aimed at preventing infant mortality. BGSU researchers will work closely with our partners and program participants to evaluate the Pathways program and HUB operations, and to identify barriers to HUB access or pathways completion. Together we aim to strengthen the Pathways HUB model to ensure greater infant vitality in our community. This project is funded through a $270,000 Ohio Third Frontier (OTF) grant from the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
