We are a collaborative center with academic partners at UCLA, RAND, and USC, and with health plan, services agency, and community members and consumer partners serving Los Angeles and other regions of the country. Our Center focuses on two themes:

  • 1) Improving quality of care at scale or broadly in communities
  • 2) Partnership in research and program development, implementation, and evaluation to achieve science that can inform and be informed by community-based services delivery within institutional, sociocultural, and neighborhood contexts.
