Working with this supervisor

The Libin Health Policy Initiative (LHPI) was founded in November, 2020.  This academic centre develops a collaboration of researchers in cardiovascular health policy and health economics to influence health care decision-makers at the provincial and national level.

Our research and policy initiatives aim to align incentives in order to optimize the timely delivery of accessible, high quality, patient-centred cardiovascular care.

The LHPI aims to become an evidence-driven thought leader in cardiovascular health policy and health economics research.  The LHPI will achieve this through the formulation of innovative research and policy ideas that are executed through collaboration with other academic groups in Alberta and nationally.
