Policy Work

We look at the big picture to address health issues from a systemic perspective.

Giving Health a stronger voice

Our Policy initiative looks at the health care issues facing our region from a more systemic, long-term perspective. Through this strategy we build the capacity of other health-focused organizations and promote unbiased, data-driven research about important topics.

This work supports education, advocacy, and analysis on issues significant to the health of uninsured and underserved Missourians. We’re working to engage our communities and government to foster a network of stakeholders who support policies that improve health.
