The University of Missouri is pleased to announce that the Center for Health Policy has joined the School of Health Professions. The Center for Health Policy is an objective, nonpartisan center committed to studying and promoting access to quality, affordable health care.
“We are excited to welcome the Center for Health Policy into the School of Health Professions,” said Dean Kristofer Hagglund. “Their expertise and commitment to evidence-based policy making will strengthen our efforts to address some of the most pressing health challenges facing our communities.”
The Center for Health Policy — established in 2002 by Dean Hagglund, PhD, and Karen Edison, MD — has a long history of conducting research and providing education and training on a wide range of health issues. Its purpose is to foster dialogue and analysis of health policy issues important to the welfare of Missourians.
“We are thrilled to be joining the School of Health Professions,” said Tracy Greever-Rice, director of the Center for Health Policy. “We believe that this integration will provide us with new opportunities to collaborate and make an even greater impact on the health of our communities.”
The School of Health Professions is home to a diverse range of programs focused on improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities. The integration of the Center for Health Policy will further enhance its efforts to address complex health issues and advance public health.
“I cannot stress enough the significance of public health and the crucial role that our school plays in improving the health and well-being of our community,” Dean Hagglund said. “As we continue to face new and emerging health challenges, it is essential that we invest in education and research to guide the work of public health professionals at the forefront of these efforts.”
