Indiana CTSI Receives $33M NIH Grant to Improve Health Statewide, with Public’s Participation
Indiana consistently lands near the bottom of the nation’s health ranking lists, with too many babies dying before their first birthday and too many people smoking and abusing drugs.

CTSI to Fund Notre Dame Early Childhood Needs Research
By Erin Blasko
The University of Notre Dame is partnering with Ready to Grow St. Joe to assess the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of children age birth to eight in St. Joseph County — part of an effort to better inform future health prevention and intervention efforts in the county, where 30 percent of young children live in poverty.
Financed with a $25,000 Community Health Partnerships grant from the Indiana CTSI, the assessment will document the current status of young children in the county and the need for programming and policy to address gaps and promote improved health and well-being.
