Health Programs and Interdisciplinary Health

Employee Health Programs Workgroup

  • Developing plan to reduce costs and improve health for employees with Type 2 diabetes across interested CHEI partner institutions, including identification of short and long-term goals, roles and potential funding opportunities.

Interdisciplinary Approaches to Health Services

  • Based on conversations with faculty from diverse disciplines, the initiative will study the economic impact of different quality improvement efforts to improve health. A conference or workshop will be developed to further the exchange of ideas and research interests in this area among CHEI partnering institutions, especially among the nursing leaders of the CHEI partnering institutions.
