The Center for Children's Health

The Center for Children's Health, led by Cook Children's, is home to the Community-wide Children's Health Assessment & Planning Survey (CCHAPS), Community Health Outreach and Community Health Research. The center's goal is to create aligned collaborations that will allow us to make our North Texas region one of the healthiest places to raise a child.

The Community-wide Children's Health Assessment & Planning Survey (CCHAPS) helped identify specific child health issues affecting the children in the Cook Children's six county service area. The 2008 survey revealed access to care, asthma, child abuse, dental health, mental health, obesity and safety as the key issues faced by the children in our region. A new study was released in 2012.

Cook Children's Community Health Outreach department (CHO) works together with more than 240 partner organizations to improve the safety and health of at-risk children in our six-county region through education, disease and injury prevention and advocacy. CHO selects issues based on health needs assessments and data collected through CCHAPS and other local organizations.
