Child Trends Launches News Research Initiative

Videos will be Syndicated to TV Networks and other News Outlets


Child Trends, a U.S. research organization dedicated to addressing policies pertaining to children, youth, and families, has created a news media project. The goal of Child Trends News Service (CTNS) is to create video news reports (in English and Spanish) on child development research and distribute them to the general public through television networks and other news media.

CTNS is a partnership between Child Trends Hispanic Institute, and Ivanhoe Broadcast News, a syndicated news company, and made possible through a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Below is one of the first such videos. You can read more about the project on the Child Trends website and see more videos on their YouTube channel.
