Bio/Research

Janet Schneiderman has partnered with the Community Assessment and Treatment Center at LAC+USC to evaluate health problems in children in the child welfare system and child welfare caregivers' barriers to access to pediatric health care. In 2009, Schneiderman was awarded a 5-year KO1 grant from the National Institutes of Health's Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to study medical neglect of children in the child welfare system. She is assessing the role of caregivers, birth parents and foster parents as they navigate the pediatric health care system to obtain needed health services.

Schneiderman has also received a USC Urban Initiative grant with the USC School of Dentistry to evaluate oral health and the effect of wraparound services on adherence to follow-up care for adults with developmental disabilities.

She received the USC Good Neighbor Volunteer Faculty Award, in addition to the Bullough Faculty Award for Outstanding Achievement. Schneiderman teaches program development and program evaluation for families and children, policy, as well as the case management course.
