Center for Health and Wellbeing

Welcome to CHW

The Center for Health and Wellbeing (CHW) fosters research and teaching on the multiple aspects of health and wellbeing in both developed and developing countries. 

The center’s goals are to understand the determinants of health and wellbeing and the role that public policy plays in shaping the quality of people’s lives, and to educate undergraduates and graduate students who aspire to careers in health and health policy.

Since its inception in 2000, CHW has convened an active interdisciplinary community of researchers who work on health, wellbeing and health policy. 

It has also developed high-quality teaching programs in health and health policy at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Read more
