The CHDI Directors welcome your involvement and ask that you join us as we advance the mission of improving children's health!

...because “children are not just small adults.”

The Child Health Discovery Institute, founded on January 1, 2010, represents a unique collaboration between pediatric scientists and clinicians focused on one mission: to improve the health of children.

The CHDI directors, Dr. Gregory Harshfield, Dr. Bernard Maria, and Dr. Martha Tingen, lead the enterprise-wide institute that seeks both to serve and respond to health issues presenting in the unique populations and environments of the local, regional and statewide communities and to develop and implement effective health promotion, prevention and treatment programs for children.
