Population Health

Strategic areas

The University of Washington’s vision for improving population health is broad, involving contributions from all of the university’s schools and colleges in partnership with external collaborators.

The role of the Population Health Initiative is to nurture and advance the key programs, projects and partnerships needed to accelerate the speed at which impact and progress can be realized.

The initiative’s focus is currently on the following strategic and thematic areas of work. These areas were collaboratively identified with faculty and other partners based on factors ranging from gaps identified via landscape assessments to coalescing of faculty around inherently interdisciplinary areas.
