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.
