In January, Kevin Gee, assistant professor of education, received
the Foundation for Child Development (FCD) Young
Scholars research award.
In a highly competitive national competition, FCD makes only five
awards each year. With the funding he received with the award,
Gee will examine over the next two years the impact of food
insecurity on children’s developmental outcomes, focusing
particularly on low-income and children of color in the aftermath
of the Great Recession of 2007-09.
