Project HealthDesign is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Pioneer Portfolio. They have generously funded our work on FitBaby for the next two years with a grant to PI Gillian Hayes and Co-PI Karen Cheng (one of our amazing collaborators from Charles Drew University). Project Health Design is focused on the use of ODLs to support chronic care. Here is a little excerpt on ODLs from the Project Health Design website:
