Health Care Delivery Faculty and Research

Our faculty is committed to research that has a positive impact on health outcomes. Using a multidisciplinary approach that emphasizes collaboration and coordination with community partners, faculty in health care delivery support student exploration and advance health in our communities. Faculty examine how to tackle health and health care challenges, explore evidence-based practices and interventions, and investigate how to optimize health and health care delivery. Current research topics include improving service quality in health care, hospice and palliative care, health disparities, health economics and policy, and evidence-based approaches to behavior change and improved health outcomes, among many others.
