Welcome to "Child Public Health"
The promotion of a healthy childhood as well as the utilization of preventive potentials during childhood and adolescence is an important premise to advance child public health.
Successfully developing and applying evidence-based knowledge to promote child public health relies heavily on in depth knowledge about the physiological and psychological situation of children and adolescents. Expanding this knowledge is the main goal of the research division "Child Public Health" of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf.
Lead by Prof. Dr. phil. Ulrike Ravens-Sieberer, the Child Public Health group is part of the Clinic for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics and is also tied to the Center for Psychosocial Medicine.
