Dr. Meryle Weinstein is a co-investigator on a new research project funded by the National Institutes of Health examining how the pandemic has affected children’s health and education in New York City. The $3.5 million study titled “COVID-19 Vaccinations and School / Community Resources: Children's Longitudinal Health and Education Outcomes Using Linked Administrative Data”  is a collaboration between New York University, Syracuse University and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The interdisciplinary team aims to delve into the effects of vaccine availability and use while examining racial, ethnic and income disparities and exploring the role of school and neighborhood resources in shaping outcomes and disparities.
