Accessible Health is both exceptionally important and lacking in our immediate vicinity and in many locations in Houston and Texas. While already operating inside vulnerable communities through our existing research organizations, there is considerable work urgently required to broaden participation in health and wellness, provide accessible and equitable health services, increase the number of health practitioners, and prepare for the UH Medical School launch as a unique society-focused research and education organization.

Our focus is the development and deployment of new technical advancements in a cost-effective and timely context, to benefit the least served communities in our midst. We aim to weave our sciences, medical sciences, engineering, social, economic and humanities expertise to be the go-to place for accessible and equitable healthcare in Houston and Texas.
