About the Center

Medical Image In 2007, Indiana University established the IU Center for Health Policy (CHP), a collaborative, multidisciplinary research center currently in the Health Policy and Management Department of the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI. Dr. Josh Vest is the director of the CHP. Our research addresses a number of critical health issues, including healthcare for vulnerable populations, mental illness and mental health services, substance abuse prevention and treatment, and health IT. CHP serves as a bridge between academic health researchers and federal, state, and local government as well as healthcare and community organizations.


The mission of CHP is to conduct research on critical health-related issues and translate data into evidence-based policy recommendations to improve community health.
