The Center for Public Policy and Health
Welcome to the Center for Public Policy and Health’s (CPPH) official website. Formerly known as the Center for Public Administration and Public Policy, the CPPH’s mission is to conduct research to develop and improve public policies aimed at enhancing the public’s health, and to provide targeted assistance to public, non-profit, and private sector organizations.
The CPPH, through its experienced staff and affiliates, continues its thirty year tradition of serving as a resource to public, non-profit, and private sector organizations in Ohio and around the country. While the Center works in a variety of policy areas pertinent to health, the environment, and community well-being, it is continuing its research and facilitation work on intergovernmental collaboration and environmental policy while expanding its work on improving public health in Ohio and beyond. Please check back regularly for updates on the Center’s work. The Center is housed within the College of Public Health’s Health Policy and Management Department in 304 Moulton Hall on the Kent State main campus. If you have questions or if we can be of assistance, please call us at 330-672-7148 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
