CANDLE Research In Action

CANDLE is a community resource with the potential to answer research questions specific to Memphis and Shelby County families. As such, it is important to ensure that results of research studies completed with CANDLE data are shared with our local community!

This page gives an overview and links to CANDLE efforts in this area; we call it “Research in Action” because we hope that community leaders, health care workers, and other community members can use our research to actively improve the health and well-being of children and families.

This series gives broad overviews of research topics and includes results from selected CANDLE publications. CANDLE Informational Brochures are available to download and print for healthcare providers and community members!
