State Health Policy Leadership

The Milbank Memorial Fund is committed to improving the ability of state health policymakers to make informed decisions that enhance the health of the populations they serve.

The Milbank Memorial Fund aims to identify, inform, and inspire current and future state health policy leaders to enhance their effectiveness in advancing health. We produce publications that show how and why state leaders achieved a policy or practice change to improve health. The Fund also hosts convenings and offers leadership support. Learn more by exploring overviews of the Milbank State Leadership Network, a bipartisan group of state health policy leaders from both the executive and legislative branches, and our leadership development programs, The Milbank Fellows Program and the Emerging Leaders Program. Finally, in partnership with the Center for Evidence-based Policy at Oregon Health & Science University, a national leader in evidence-based decision making and policy design, we offer state technical assistance.
