A Note from the Director

Shari Bolen, MD

Dear Colleagues,

On January 2, 2020, I became the Founding Director for the Population Health Research Institute at The MetroHealth System. The Population Health Research Institute is comprised of three research centers (the Center for Informatics Research, the Center for Reducing Health Disparities, and the Center for Health Care Research and Policy) and supported by a Biostatistics and Data Sciences Division.

Together, our 3 centers in partnership with our over 45 collaborative faculty from across the region developed the following shared vision: The Population Health Research Institute will be trusted and renowned for innovation and discovery that foster thriving, healthy equitable communities.  Our collective efforts will establish powerful new models of how to improve the health of different communities in the region, statewide, and nationally. 

The three Centers within the Population Health Research Institute have had great success in 2021 with over 40 publications and over 32 active grants totaling over $21 million dollars (increased from 28 grants and $18 million in 2020). Our outstanding research programs led by nationally renowned investigators are further described on each of the Center’s websites. 

I look forward to partnering with faculty from all 3 centers along with collaborating faculty and other internal and external stakeholders as we expand our nationally recognized success in education, innovation and discovery in population health, and continue our efforts to improve the health and equity of the communities we serve.

Sincerely, 

Shari Bolen MD, MPH
