In addition to our Centers of Research, Akron Children’s has other outstanding research programs for researchers at all levels of experience.

Community Care Coordination and Risk Reduction Research Program

Mark Redding, MD – Program Director

This research program is part of the Center for Population and Health Services Research. It focuses on identifying and reducing risk factors across medical, social and behavioral health, and offers research opportunities critical to improving medical and socioeconomic outcomes. Our research in partnership with local and national centers works to improve programming and payment approaches. Community health workers, primary care networks, academic centers and payer systems also provide opportunities for research partnerships to inform improvement in population health.
