  • Working with state health policy decision makers on issues they identify as important to population health and health equity, particularly in areas related to primary care and sustainable health care costs; and
  • Publishing high-quality, evidence-based publications and The Milbank Quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal of population health and health policy.
