Leveraging technological innovation for reproductive health

The Wallace Center is a multidisciplinary research and training center consisting of UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and students that aims to advance the health of parents, adolescents, and children with technology, innovation, and community engagement.

We are a research-action center that capitalizes on UC Berkeley and the Bay Area as a nexus of technological innovation and reproductive health action, research, and advocacy. 

The Wallace Center aims to harness innovative technologies as a means of reducing maternal and child health inequities and diminishing the digital divide between those with ready access to the health benefits of technology and those who do not.
