Center for Pediatric Psychology

The field of pediatric psychology is devoted to the fostering of children’s health through interdisciplinary prevention and intervention. With over 20 million children in the U.S. living with a chronic health condition (e.g., type 1 diabetes, cancer, cystic fibrosis, epilepsy, asthma, obesity), pediatric psychology seeks to understand those factors that place youth with an illness and their families at risk for further negative health outcomes.
The mission of the Center for Pediatric Psychology is to engage in cutting-edge scientific discovery related to all aspects of children's health, as well as their families, and to foster integrated research, training and clinical service delivery.
