The Children’s Environmental Health Network invited Jennifer Marshall, PhD, MPH, to join its Eco-Healthy Child Care® National Advisory Committee. She’ll also serve as a level 2 reviewer for the National Resource Centers’ upcoming publication on standards for Caring for Infants and Toddlers in Child Care and Early Education.
“I’m thrilled with the opportunity to translate research to policy and practice, impacting infants and toddlers in child care homes and centers nationwide,” Dr. Marshall said.
A graduate of the University of South Florida, Dr. Marshall conducts research on access and quality in early intervention and early childhood education and care. She authored the American Public Health Association’s 2013 policy statement on “Caring for Our Children: National Health and Safety Performance Standards.”
Dr. Marshall holds dual posts at USF and the University of Miami. At USF, Dr. Marshall is a research associate in the USF College of Public Health, Department of Community and Family Health. Last fall, she accepted a postdoctoral associate position with the UM’s School of Education & Human Development, Department of Teaching and Learning. In this capacity she is responsible for conducting research on outcomes of local and statewide early intervention and special education programs, and associated child, family, and community-level factors impacting child development and intervention outcomes.
