Reaching beyond the University

Impact Snapshots


From our home in the Center for Health and Wellbeing to the furthest reaches of the globe, we seek to be of service. 

That means:

  • Contributing our knowledge to create healthier lives
  • Promoting the greater good for diverse populations
  • Continually seeking ways to make a difference


A Range of Projects

Our research is influential in the development of better health policy, from the emergency room to the board room to the local community.
