IHI and NKU commits to forging partnerships addressing population health initiatives by:

  • Researching health outcomes among probate defendants in collaboration with the probate court in Butler County in Ohio and faculty in the Department of Political Science, Criminal Justice and Organizational Leadership;
  • Initiating the “NKU Closet” along with on-campus partners in Student Affairs and colleges to create a resource for students in need of clothing; and
  • Collecting data and estimating the number of housing and food insecure students at NKU to develop wrap around programs for support.

 

Research

The Institute is currently working with community partners on two research projects to better understand the social determinants of health in the Northern Kentucky Region.

The Institute is working with the probate court in Butler County in Ohio and faculty in the Department of Political Science, Criminal Justice, and Organizational Leadership to determine whether outpatient probate defendants have better health outcomes than those for whom there are no outpatient probate options. 

For the second project, the Institute is working with the Cincinnati VA, the Weaver Institute for Law and Psychiatry at the University of Cincinnati, and NKU Chase College of Law to analyze how successful the veterans courts are in the tri-state region at improving healthcare outcomes and reducing recidivism.
