Our Work

Penn’s hub for health policy, health economics, and health services research, Penn LDI connects and supports researchers across schools and disciplines to accelerate interdisciplinary research and initiatives. While our Fellows’ work spans all aspects of health care, it fits broadly under four themes that highlight current challenges in improving our nation’s health system.
