Public Health and Health Care

Quality of life in Minnesota is intrinsically tied to the health of its residents. Wilder Research works with community organizations, health care institutions, public health and state agencies, and funders to understand how to improve health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequities.

We also study pilot programs and interventions aimed to increase quality of care, reduce health inequities, or improve access to care.
