Population Health and Health Systems

MPC population health research is at the forefront of addressing research questions about the shape of health disparities; the interplay between human population dynamics, social context, and disease etiology; and interventions designed to promote health and mitigate health inequities. We have a thriving research collaborative representing faculty and staff from the fields of economics, epidemiology, medicine, population studies, public health, public policy, and sociology. Our strength in research on health care access and health disparities, together with our leadership in developing powerful new health-related datasets, uniquely position us to make breakthroughs in three key areas of population health research. PRA Leaders: Julia Drew and Rachel Widome.
