David Mechanic, Director

The Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research (IHHCPAR) was established to consolidate and focus the resources of the university on critical health and aging issues facing the nation. It facilitates collaboration among scholars who represent many disciplines, providing them with opportunities to pool their knowledge and expertise in examining multifaceted health issues. The institute has three divisions on health, health policy, and aging. Its centers include the Center for State Health Policy; Center for Health Services Research on Pharmacotherapy, Chronic Disease Management, and Outcomes; Center for Education and Research in Therapeutics; and Center for the Study of Health Beliefs and Behavior. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Awards Program in Health Policy Research is also housed at the institute. The divisions and centers of the institute provide research and training opportunities to predoctoral students enrolled in degree-granting programs elsewhere in the university, to trainees enrolled in the institute's postdoctoral program, and to undergraduates. While the institute has a broad scope, it focuses its research and policy efforts in areas where it has analytic strength and where it can build on the excellence of academic departments and professional schools at the university.
