Health and Wellness
Together with community leaders, we have prioritized population health issues to promote the well-being of people in our region, including substance abuse, obesity and diabetes, infant mortality, tobacco use, and chronic disease.
Examples of health and wellness initiatives:
- A partnership between the School of Public Health, IU Health, and community partners to do community health needs assessments in the 11-county region
- New and evolving programs within the IU Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Social Work that focus on population health, mental health, and addiction and help train health care professionals to meet the needs of the region
- Leadership development opportunities through the IU School of Medicine and the IU Kelley School of Business for medical professionals who join serve at regional hospitals and medical centers
