CHS Research

Faculty research focuses on vulnerable populations and their communities as well as on health care systems and the workforce. Research conducted by CHS faculty aims to:

  • Advance knowledge and theory through research
  • Design and evaluate the organization, financing and delivery of health care
  • Generate and test innovative professional educational models

Faculty research contributes to our understanding of the effect of disease or conditions on vulnerable populations including homeless and disadvantaged people and communities; individuals with psychiatric disorders and issues of trauma and abuse; high-risk infants and children; workers at risk for or living with injury or disability; individuals with chronic diseases like asthma, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and HIV; and ethnic and immigrant minorities.

The International Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Clinical Training in Nursing is an inter-departmental and multi-disciplinary effort, committed to research, education and care of individuals with HIV.
