How do grass-roots agencies and programs lacking the expertise and the budget to publicize their work get their message out to the communities they serve? How do scholars and researchers, who publish their work primarily in professional journals, make the latest in child development research accessible to the public? CAMEO Feature News (CFN), an internet-based project at the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Development at Tufts University, brings together the community and the university in a novel partnership that addresses both of these questions.
