To address critical public health needs in Northern Virginia and beyond, the George Mason College of Health and Human Services has launched the Population Health Center, an essential and bold intersection of academics and practice.
The Population Health Center, located on Mason’s Fairfax campus, addresses the transformation in how we access and deliver care, particularly for underrepresented and uninsured populations. The Center will help: health practitioners attain new skills and credentials; employers meet evolving needs; and communities connect with innovative, solution-oriented partners.
The Population Health Center facilitates partnerships between academia and community and houses state-of-the art facilities for telehealth, research, and clinical care. The 10th Mason and Partners (MAP) Clinic, a no-barrier free clinic, will be located at the Center as will co-located community partners who will provide resources to address determinants of health such as access to housing, food, and affordable prescriptions.
Inaugural initiatives taking place at the Population Health Center include:
