Many of the research publications listed are supported by a grant from the American Board of Pediatric (ABP) Foundation to the University of Michigan’s Child Health Evaluation and Research Group (CHEAR), with Dr. Gary L. Freed as the principal investigator. The purpose of the ABP Foundation is to fund projects that may not be within the core mission of the ABP, but have the potential to improve the quality of care for children in a way that complements the work of the ABP. While oversight of this grant is through the Research Advisory Committee of the ABP, studies are conducted independently by Dr. Freed and staff at CHEAR. Neither the ABP nor the Research Advisory Committee embargoes the release of results. Complete and transparent data are submitted by Dr. Freed for publication in peer-review journals.
