CIK was established in 2015 to serve as a transdisciplinary collaborative for population health improvement, policy, and analytics. The primary operations of CIK include data warehousing and analytics, community-based research, and health policy research and education. The Health Equity Innovation Hub is a joint collaboration between UofL, the Humana Foundation, and Humana Inc. established in 2022 aimed at closing health equity gaps facing vulnerable populations.

Educational activities are expected to flow from the growing SPHIS infrastructure with the candidate contributing to instructional activities in areas such as an expansion of health administration and health services research instruction, seminars on health-targeted topics, and community presentations within Louisville, Kentucky’s large and vibrant healthcare community.

SPHIS maintains very strong working partnerships with the Louisville Metropolitan government and Commonwealth of Kentucky.
