About the Center

Our Center

The Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living was founded in 2006 with a vision of healthy children in a healthy world and a mission to advance health and healthy living for children and families through cutting-edge research, innovative community programs, and dissemination of data-driven practices.

Our Work

We seek new discoveries in child and family health through research-focused programs related to obesity prevention, nutrition, physical activity, tobacco use, and health policy. Our annual key events and webinar series offer trainings to students, partners, and the community.

Our Goals

Our intentions are threefold: create new research ideas and trainings for public health students; communicate evidence-based products and outcomes to researchers and legislators; and connect with communities and other public health organizations.

Between July 2021-June 2022, Center faculty research and initiatives have impacted nearly 10 million lives
