The Institution for Social and Policy Studies has launched a new initiative, ISPS Health at Yale, that will focus on promoting the development and dissemination of evidence-based health policy inside and outside of Yale. Led by Zack Cooper, a health economist at the School of Public Health and Faculty Fellow at ISPS, the goal of the initiative is to facilitate interdisciplinary research on health policy (broadly defined) at the university, encourage student participation in health policy, and help to coordinate health policy research and thinking across campus.
“Our aim is to make ISPS Health at Yale as academically diverse as possible, drawing on faculty from a range of disciplines,” says Cooper. “We will also be working hard to serve as a link between scholars at Yale and policy-makers at the local, state, and federal level, as well as connecting interested scholars with the media.”
