Our mission is to change systems to create healthier communities through research, evaluation, and translation.
We use a range of innovative methods and strategies in three core focus areas:
POLICY & PREVENTION
Reducing the harmful effects of chronic disease through development, dissemination and implementation of public health prevention policies.
DISSEMINATION & IMPLEMENTATION
Sharing and implementing the results of public health science effectively in healthcare settings, communities, and states.
Studying the complex nature of systems, using new methodologies such as social network analysis, agent-based modeling, and system dynamics.
