Society today faces many critical challenges to ensuring good health and high-quality health care. Such challenges involve a range of issues including:

  • Equitable access to health care
  • The financing and delivery of health care
  • The legal and regulatory environment of health care enterprises
  • The health of different segments of our society, including children, the elderly, persons with disabilities, and economically or otherwise disadvantaged members of our community
  • Dilemmas in bioethics
  • Conflict resolution and patient safety
  • Biotechnology and scientific research
  • Environmental and public health
  • International health and human rights

The center encourages research and scholarship that address all of these important 21st-century challenges
