The University of Pennsylvania's Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) has announced the award of twelve 2020 small grants to teams led by twelve LDI Senior and Associate Fellows engaged in work across a wide range of health services research (HSR) areas.

Early stage investigations
Throughout most of its 52-year history as Penn's hub of health services and policy research, LDI has annually provided small grant funding for early stage investigations that would otherwise not qualify for larger NIH or other institutional grants.

The 2020 grantees are involved in projects ranging from the analysis of suicide prevention programs in juvenile detention facilities and the association of housing affordability to health outcomes, to disparities in neonatal abstinence syndrome outcomes, and the use of community health care workers to improve outcomes among high-risk pediatric patients newly-diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Below are the recipients and their projects:
