California Public Health PBRN

Back to Map


The Public Health Practice-Based Research Network for the State of CA is led by the Public Health Institute (PHI), Oakland, California.  The CA PBRN is developing a research agenda that studies the “sweet spot” where synergistic health improvement activities within the clinical care system and government public health system overlap and have the greatest impact on total population health. Priority areas include health equity, public health data integration and meaningful use issues, testing and validating local health department assessment instruments, application of systems science methodologies for health policy planning, and strategies for achieving accreditation/quality improvement initiatives.
