Hi, I’m Colin Peterson, and this summer I’m continuing a project with the Center on Poverty and Inequality and Nurse-Family Partnership. NFP is a nonprofit that sends nurses to visit with and help young, low-income mothers during their pregnancy and the first two years of their child’s life, and we’re trying to do a causal evaluation of it and find areas for possible program improvement. This relates to my research interests in inequality, poverty, and the concentration of disadvantage.
