Welcome to the Center for Population Health Sciences and Health Equity

The George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) Center for Population Health Sciences and Health Equity (CPHSHE) was founded in 2022 as the premier academic center for applied population health research to address health inequities. CPHSHE provides strategic direction and support for the education, research and clinical programs throughout the GW academic medical enterprise and affiliated clinical sites — GW SMHS, GW Medical Faculty Associates (GW MFA), GW Hospital, and Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center-GW Health) — to advance the enterprise-wide goal to improve population health through a health equity lens.

The CPHSHE achieves its mission by advancing population health sciences in GW’s clinical, academic, and research programs with a focus on health equity and the elimination of health disparities.
