Mission-Driven Research

The areas of research that encompass the current missions at SONHS represent some of the most important challenges facing the world today.  From Patient Safety and Outcomes to Disaster PreparednessVulnerable Populations to Global HealthFamily Caregiving to Health Disparities, we are dedicated to improving delivery of care to patients and communities as well as influencing health systems and health policy.  To that end, this website contains information about what each research mission entails, why SONHS finds each of these areas important to study, and what we are doing to make a difference.  Here you will find research studies, publications, presentations, and profiles of our faculty experts who bring their innovation and excellence to advancing these priorities.
