The Health Law Policy Center at the University of Hawai‘i strives to meet three core goals:
- To conduct and disseminate research on health law policy aimed at improving health care access in Hawai‘i;
- To serve as a focus for multidisciplinary research, teaching, and discourse on health law and policy in the context of Hawai‘i;
- To bring community leaders, health care policymakers, and multidisciplinary faculty members and students together to study, examine, and devise solutions to health care shortages and other barriers to access in Hawai‘i’s rural, impoverished, or otherwise underserved communities.
The Center has developed a multi-disciplinary course in Health Law and Policy at the Law School and hosts monthly health law and policy discussions. The Center is establishing a Distinguished Visitors Program and plans to provide post-graduate and professional school fellowships and faculty grants in the areas of health law policy.
