Mission

To produce rigorous and meaningful epidemiologic research through effective collaboration to inform policy decisions and promote health equity (and change the world!).

Equity

We employ an equity lens to examine differences in health outcomes.

Collaboration

We leverage multi-disciplinary teams and incorporate voices from community, state, and federal partners to increase the value of our research.

Diversity

Our goal is to incorporate diversity within our team, amongst our partners, and across our research spectrum.

Integrity

We seek to design and disseminate our research responsibly through transparent communication.

Impact

We aim to conduct research to improve health equity through policy change.

Empathy

We approach our work knowing that each data point represents someone’s lived experience, and interpret our findings with care.
