We are a resource for fact-based, nonpartisan health policy information and a catalyst for systemic change at the federal, state, and local levels.
Health Policy looks at the health care issues facing our region from a more systemic, long-term perspective. We promote unbiased, data-driven research about important topics and support projects that fit with our Health Policy agenda, including:
Enhancing access to care
Addressing the social, economic, and environmental factors that shape health
Strategically aligned work (policy projects that further our issues-based strategies)
If you are interested in discussing a potential project related to this agenda, please contact Sheldon Weisgrau, Vice President of Health Policy.
We also provide a variety of resources related to policy and systems-change work:
We provide up-to-date nonpartisan information on health-related issues being addressed by the Missouri General Assembly and U.S. Congress to help our community partners navigate the policymaking process.
Health Policy Publications
We publish nonpartisan research and analysis that informs decisions on topics such as Missouri Medicaid, health equity, federal health reform, policy options, surveys, and more.
