Michigan Practice Based Research Network


Rural Michigan contains regions challenged by high levels of socioeconomic stress and limited access to healthcare. Populations living in these areas are subject to health disparities. If unaddressed, these situations will contribute to unsustainable cost increases to health and human service systems. The Michigan Public Health Practice Based Research Network (MI-PBRN) supports interdisciplinary research increasing the knowledge base for these matters. The new knowledge rendered helps support innovative policy and public health practice initiatives to address health disparities and reduce the financial risks represented by high-cost populations with complex needs. The MI-PBRN leadership is based on a unique partnership between Western Michigan University and TrueNorth Community Services.
