Welcome to the Department of Health Services, Policy & Practice
The mission of the Brown University Department of Health Services, Policy & Practice (HSPP) in the Public Health Program is to conduct basic and applied research that advances scientific knowledge regarding the determinants of population health, to translate this scientific knowledge into improved public health policy and practice, and to train the next generation of researchers and practitioners. In pursuit of this mission, HSPP faculty conduct a broad range of research funded by the NIH and other organizations, and has undergraduate, graduate, medical student and post-doctoral fellowship educational programs. In addition we have developed relationships with a wide variety of individuals and organizations in Rhode Island state agencies, such as the Department of Health, that allow our faculty and trainees to both provide needed services and be active participants in the policy making process.
