From local social service providers, to hospital systems, to counties, our partners across the nation help us implement and refine our programs and interventions.

As a single research center based in Chicago, the TMW Center does not have the resources nor the local knowledge necessary to bring our programs to life in communities around the country. But we are committed to ensuring that our research and evidence-based interventions do not remain locked in academic settings. That’s why we build community collaborations with organizations on-the-ground who can work hand-in-hand with us to implement the interventions locally, and help us determine what works for whom.

Recognizing that there are many other committed research institutions around the world making important progress toward addressing early cognitive disparities, we also build research collaborations to facilitate the exchange of data, ideas, and solutions.
