How do we do it?

We do our research. We publish policy briefs and reports that are diligent, data-driven, and non-partisan.

We put that research in the hands of decision-makers. Often policymakers have to make decisions on big issues with very little information at hand. Our research helps them to make informed choices about policies that affect Connecticut residents’ health.

We collaborate. Changing systems isn’t an individual effort. That’s why we build and participate in collaborations and coalitions, engage partners, and bring together experts to raise awareness, take action, and tackle issues that cause health inequity in Connecticut.

We participate. Our staff members serve on a number of work groups, including the Medicaid Strategy Group, the Governor’s Healthcare Cabinet, the state Healthcare Innovation Steering Committee, and others.
