Our Findings

As we present and/or publish research findings from the ELLA Study, we will post that information here. Most journals will allow us to post unformatted final versions of our accepted manuscripts for individuals who do not have paid access to the journals (the pdfs will have a link to the final, published version if you have access/prefer those). We will also post our conference presentations here. Our goal is to eventually have infographics of each of our papers and presentations that can be used to quickly inform stakeholders about important research findings. These will be linked at the end of the citations for which they are available.
