The Institute for Health Innovation focuses on three areas of need in Kentucky: Chronic Illness, Social Determinants of Health, and Future Health Leaders. Each focus area represents several programs tackling different aspects of the unmet health needs.


Chronic Illness

The Institute for Health Innovation is working with the hardest hit communities to bring hope and provide solutions for chronic illness in Northern Kentucky.

Social Determinants of Health

As part of the Institute and NKU's commitment to forging partnerships to address population health initiatives, the Institute is looking specifically at social determinants of health.

Future Health Leaders

NKU and the Institute are uniquely positioned in Northern Kentucky to create a pipeline for reducing the future healthcare worker shortage through our programs for students.
