Director’s Message

Welcome to the Center for HOPES. The Center has a long history at Ohio State, serving as a resource for policy makers and researchers seeking to understand how to improve health care and population health.

The Center takes an interdisciplinary approach to health and health care systems. Housed in the College of Public Health, our team brings evaluation, economic, and policy expertise to complex issues facing our communities. In addition, we provide a platform for scholars from Ohio State’s wide array of colleges and schools to take advantage of our expertise, as well as learn from one another.

The Center’s current projects include serving on the State of Ohio Covid Recovery data team, conducting research on addressing Ohio’s opioid epidemic, analyzing access to reproductive health services, and investigating health care payor strategies for addressing social determinants of health. We believe a deep and wide understanding of the issues facing health care systems and our communities can provide the most actionable information to decision makers.

Our goal is to help government, communities, and organizations better understand the impact of programs and policies. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, or if you are interested in partnering with the Center for HOPES.
