FACHS recognized with Inclusive Voices Award

The Family and Community Health Study (FACHS), one of the ongoing research projects of CFR, was recently awarded the “Inclusive Voices Award” from the American Association for Public Opinion Research.  The award recognizes “the important data sets, research, and survey methods that have improved the ability to study complex social phenomena related to understudied populations,” and is presented “to the scholars/researchers, organizations, or institutions who have produced the scholarship (including data collection, methodological approaches, or publications).”

The FACHS project, on-going since 1996, has worked to understand the effect of family processes, neighborhood characteristics, and other contextual factors on African American parents and their children. Congratulations to the entire team from CFR and associates around the country on the recognition of the importance of this work from AAPOR.
