We work with organizations and communities to develop initiatives that seek to understand the implementation, outcomes and impact of public community health programs.
We believe that community-identified solutions are the best solutions and we work with communities to understand and tailor interventions to meet local community health needs.
Systems science examines feedback loops, emergent properties, and complexity, among other things, which allow scientists to understand and document complex interactions that result in health behavior or health problems.
