The power of data has long been a cornerstone of public health efforts to prevent disease, promote health and inform equitable policies and programs.

Our mission

We work across disciplines and with community partners to promote actionable and effective uses of data to advance population health.

How we work

We support cross-disciplinary research by offering students, trainees and faculty scholars’ resources for effective data collection, cleaning, transfer, storage, management, evaluation and analysis.

We enhance regional and community public health efforts by advising on innovative uses of data, complex data management, integration and security, and lay-friendly data reporting.

We provide our expertise to advance data-driven efficiencies in regional and community initiatives for population health improvement.
