We strive to conduct research that results in meaningful change for health and health care delivery.

With a robust network of dedicated faculty, students and postdoctoral scholars, the Department of Health Behavior and Policy is proud to conduct innovative research that identifies and addresses the behavioral, social, organizational and policy factors that affect the health of individuals and populations.

Through quantitative and qualitative methods, community engagement, clinical trials and policy analysis, we aim to contribute to systemic changes that promote health and improve health care delivery. The department’s diverse portfolio is a reflection of this team, and our multidisciplinary research environment fosters curiosity and collaboration across a broad spectrum of areas of interest.
