Michigan Public Health Institute

Okemos, Michigan



The institute seeks to improve health conditions in Michigan populations and communities through collaboration, scientific inquiry, and applied expertise. This grant funds the development of a Place Matters Task Force, as part of the Michigan Convergence Initiative, to research and identify the social conditions in Michigan that are major determinants of health, and to produce four policy briefs for dissemination to stakeholders.
