Public Policy Initiatives


Policymakers determine the guidelines upon which our healthcare system functions, the laws that dictate socially normative behavior, and the funding priorities that inform how resources are distributed across communities. Public policies influence both the provision of healthcare as well as the social drivers of health. The Center will organize and facilitate working research toward equitable policy prescriptions in the following areas:

  • Healthcare
  • Housing Stability
  • Education
  • Poverty



The Public Policy Initiative area will be lead by Tony Carey, Jr.
