The REACH Center is directed by Anne Kazak, PhD and Melissa Alderfer, PhD of the Nemours Center for Healthcare Delivery Science.
REACH focuses on developing, evaluating, and implementing innovative stakeholder-engaged technology-enhanced interventions and models of care to overcome the complex socioecological factors responsible for inadequate access to healthcare and child health.
The REACH Center includes two Research Cores and funds multiple research and pilot projects. Three programs to develop investigators are based in the Administrative Core.
