Prior to joining OSU in July of 2013, she was a George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF) Chair in Community Medicine at OU-Tulsa. Since 2008, Dr. Hays-Grudo has been involved with the Tulsa Children’s Project, a GKFF-funded collaboration between OU-Tulsa, Harvard’s Center for the Developing Child, Tulsa Educare, and other community partners in designing and implementing a highly integrated set of interventions to reduce the effects of intergenerational poverty and adversity on young children.
