We're committed to community-engaged research that improves practice, policy and population health.
Partnerships are a key component of our research, ensuring a rich exchange of expertise spanning science, culture, neighborhoods, environment, practice and policy. Research skills, pragmatic knowledge and lived experience combine to inform culturally and community-centered solutions for addressing real-world health and healthcare challenges.
In 2020, Feinberg investigations involved 683 community performance sites in Illinois.
