About Us

The Make it Click program was created by a team of researchers in the Pediatrics‘ Division of Community Health and Research (CHR) at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) in Norfolk, Virginia, USA. For over 20 years, the Division of CHR has been dedicated to serving children and their families through basic, clinical, and applied research that advances the prevention and treatment of disability and disease. Through education, training and collaboration the CHR promotes the translation of research to innovations that improve child health and safety.
