ICHP supports the expansion of the continuum of health care in the areas of prevention, health promotion, and chronic-disease management with a range of activities directed toward populations and individuals across the lifespan. Those activities include community-based universal prevention and programs targeting health risks, social services, schools, and businesses.
To satisfy its mission, ICHP integrates the expertise of CHSR in health research and community-based prevention with LEADS’ knowledge and experience in strengthening social services. The Institute also works to create strong affiliations with SUNY Buffalo State academic departments, including Health and Wellness, and degree programs such as the Master of Public Administration in Public and Nonprofit Management.
