Promotion of Policies for Whole, Equitable Health

Bringing wholeness to individuals and communities, the Institute for Health Policy and Leadership (IHPL) strives to integrate health policy research and education with leadership development.

Strategic Priorities

To bring focus to our work, the Institute has identified three strategic priorities: oral health, mental health and hunger as a health issue.

Spotlight on Health Policy

Building upon IHPL’s Spotlight on Reform health care law provider series, Spotlight on Health Policy grand rounds focus on timely and informative topics and their policy implications.

Policy At A Glance

The Institute scans what is happening in CA legislature and generates policy briefs to provide information and analysis about relevant health policy bills and new laws.


Issue At A Glance

IHPL periodically develops briefs on current issues with a special focus on oral health, hunger, and mental/behavioral health. These briefs highlight pertinent issues in order to inform our readers and to spark a dialogue among stakeholders to better promote health and prevent disease.
