The goal of the Population Health Laboratory (PHL) is to promote population-based health and delivery of health care that is most effective for clinical, socio-demographic, and geographic groups. We have a strong focus in cancer care, including screening, treatment, and surveillance. We believe that how and where care is received influences treatment and outcomes. With a special emphasis in how health care resources are allocated across populations, the PHL uses cross-disciplinary, geospatial innovation in data-driven research to address critical questions related to population health and health care delivery. The PHL research program is largely built around our expertise in the integration of population health, health services research, registries, geospatial data, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and informatics. The PHL is directed by Dr. Tracy Onega. Dr. Onega also co-leads the Registry Shared Resource of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
