UW Launches New Population Health Resource Directory

Population Health at UW has partnered with the Institute of Translational Health Sciences to develop a directory of population health-related resources at the University of Washington.

The goal of this directory is to present the breadth of expertise and resources across disciplines and campuses that are currently working on the population health challenges we face.
