California Health Policy Forum
The California Health Policy Forum, a trusted health policy resource for California state policymakers, has moved to the University of California Davis, Institute for Population Health Improvement. Originally located at the Center for Health Improvement under the direction of Karen Shore, PhD, the transition of the Forum to IPHI was completed with new grants from the California HealthCare Foundation and The California Endowment in September 2013..
Through briefings targeted to legislative and executive branch health policy staff in the State Capitol and through written policy briefs, the Forum focuses on identifying evidence-based, actionable policy recommendations. The Forum invites leading experts from across California and the country to present the latest evidence, innovations, and thinking on current health care issues. The Forum also synthesizes the latest research and analyzes health care issues in published briefs that offer concrete policy recommendations. The Forum is nonpartisan and does not advocate for any particular policy, political party, or legislation.
