Stanford Health Policy and the Kaiser Family Foundation are collaborating to examine the disparities in meeting vaccination benchmarks by using state-reported vaccination data by race/ethnicity and projecting vaccine coverage going forward.
This year’s Rosenkranz Prize winners are both working to better understand preeclampsia in pregnancies and a form of childhood malnutrition in lower-resourced countries in an effort to find medical interventions.
Michelle Mello evaluates the benefits and challenges of California's novel health equity focus in its reopening efforts and outlines recommendations for other U.S. states to address disparities in their reopening plans.
The COVID-19 pandemic has provoked historic educational disruptions. In an effort to inform public policy on the school re-opening debate, a team of researchers developed a model to simulate transmission in elementary and high school communities, as well as household interactions.
The Veterans Administration is the largest provider of opioid use disorder treatment in the United States. In new Stanford Health Policy research, PhD student Jack Ching and faculty find short-term treatment with medication could yield big benefits.
Two projects launched at Stanford Health Policy are featured in the Stanford Department of Medicine 2021 Annual Report: the COVID Modeling Project and Maya Rossin-Slater's work to mentor women studying for their PhDs in economics.
A national body of evidence-based health experts — including SHP Director Douglas K. Owens — recommends screening for colon cancer in adults 45 to 75 in an effort to protect Americans from the third leading cause of cancer death in the country.
Latinos, the state’s largest ethnic group, have faced greater exposure to COVID-19 and has contracted and died from the coronavirus at higher rates than non-Hispanic whites, according to a study led by Stanford Health Policy.
Two-thirds of the nearly 100,000 incarcerated residents in California's 35 prisons were offered COVID-19 vaccines and 66.5% of those accepted at least one dose, according to a new Stanford study — although uptake varied across different groups.
