About Us

     The COVID-19 pandemic was a global disaster that exacerbated health outcomes for children, especially those belonging to under-served and under-resourced communities. We believe children themselves are stakeholders of their own well-being, and thus, should be empowered as contributory change-agents.

     We developed “Project Insight” for 10th and 11th grade high school students in the Washington, D.C metro area to learn about disaster preparedness, social drivers of health, community resilience, and health justice in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. After completing the program, students will be given the opportunity to serve on a Youth Advisory Council for a national coalition called the Pediatric Pandemic Network.  


     We choose the name “Project Insight” because we hope this program will empower youth to gain insight about the root causes of health injustices while simultaneously providing the Pediatric Pandemic Network and other stakeholders with insight on how to address these challenges.
