CHPR Mission Statement
Our mission at CHPR is to facilitate research, promote education, and inform policy about health and healthcare.
The goal we are striving to accomplish through this mission is to improve the health of the public by contributing new knowledge about access, delivery, cost, quality, and outcomes related to healthcare and providing rigorous evidence to policymakers and other stakeholders.
