Social science research team funded through Penn State's Strategic Plan
Dr. Susan McHale, SSRI director, and her research team was recently funded for a project to support Penn State's 2016-2020 Strategic Plan. Through an innovative new funding process, Penn State is investing $2 million in its top strategic priorities, while simultaneously advancing the vital and transformative work of its faculty, staff and students across the University.
The team's project, Integrated Data Systems Solutions for Health Equity, supports the priority of enhancing health. This project's goal is to develop the ability to access and link administrative data that the state collects from residents on health and health care for inferential and predictive analysis to advance understanding of health disparities and provide direction for public policy in the Commonwealth.
