Document Number: 9674Effects of a School-Based, Early Childhood Intervention on Adult Health and Well-Being - An article published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine discusses the latest findings from the Chicago Child-Parent Center longitudinal study. Results from the 19-year follow-up continue to show that participants, who are now 24 years of age, are more likely to have health insurance and less likely to show depressive symptoms. At the same time, they are more likely to complete high school and attend four-year colleges, and less likely to be arrested or incarcerated.
