Brown University Announces New $25 Million Institute to Combat Childhood Health Problems

Brown University is launching a new institute to combat childhood health issues and improve the health of kids worldwide. Brown University announced the creation of the Hassenfeld Child Health Innovation Institute. The family of retired Hasbro Chairman and CEO Alan Hassenfeld, a former Brown trustee, provided a $12.5 million founding gift. Brown says it will raise $12.5 million to match the donation. The research institute will focus on child health from pregnancy through young adulthood with an emphasis on combating childhood obesity, asthma and autism. Research shows that healthier children perform better in school and later in the workforce, and obesity, asthma and autism are among the most acute childhood health issues. The institute will bring together specialists in research, clinical practice and public health. Brown is collaborating with Hasbro Children's Hospital and Women and Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, as well as with government agencies, nonprofits and others.
