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 Initiatives

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

Spotlight on Health Policy

Our quarterly Spotlight on Health Policy events help inform our campus community regarding relevant health policy topics and promote constructive dialogue about these topics.


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.
