Innovation in Public Health

NEHI research and analysis promotes the adoption of evidence-based policy and practices for health promotion, the prevention of chronic disease and reducing health risks. Prior NEHI projects have focused on the unique social, political and business challenges of sustaining effective, multi-factor strategies that improve health at the local and regional level. Current NEHI projects focus on identifying potential policy solutions to expand access to adult vaccinations, and raising awareness for new treatment choices for diabetes care that target glycemic control, reduce cardiovascular disease risks and promote weight control.
