ISPS Health at Yale launched in 2013 and is comprised of over three dozen faculty from across the university. Our goal is to bring scholars from across Yale together to create an environment that can improve health, strengthen health care systems, and enhance the way health care is delivered.

Zachary Cooper

In addition to helping produce evidence that can inform policy, we connect Yale scholars to the outside world, and help educate the next generation of health policy leaders. ISPS Health holds academic seminars throughout the year, making data available to Yale scholars, and serving as a portal to show what’s happening in health policy across campus.
