PolicyLab Receives New $8.5 Million PCORI Funding Award

Researchers at PolicyLab, CHOP and Northwell Health’s Cohen Children’s Medical Center have been approved for a $8.5 million funding award by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to study how to improve quality of life for youth with sickle cell disease as they transition to adult care. This collaborative research project will evaluate how two different interventions impact health outcomes and self-management skills for these youth.
