My research focuses on health care policy and access and I direct the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC), a research and policy center funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support state efforts to monitor and evaluate programs to increase access and coverage. The center provides high-level access to federal surveys. As an advocate for information access, I helped to bring a Census Research Data Center to the University of Minnesota, which is the only RDC with a health services and policy focus.
