Center for Health Engineering Research

Senior Research Chair: Ellen Daroszewski

The Center for Health Engineering Research (CHER) is focused on design and intervention for health promotion and the healthcare system functioning. CHER supports the scholarship of faculty, students, and alumni as they examine and restructure health and healthcare environments to maximize wellness and optimize healthcare system functioning.The University Research Chairs, including Dr. Ellen Daroszewski for CHER, bring world-class knowledge, and theoretical and methodological expertise from their disciplines, to lead the development and operation of the Centers. The Center for Health Engineering Research serves as a "home" for faculty, students, and alumni purusing scholarship which includes 1) understanding, promoting, and improving health outside of the healthcare system and 2) structuring the healthcare system for optimum effectiveness. Health engineering is the uses of evidence-based knowledge and design to build strutures, processes, and systemes to improve health and healthcare.

The Center for Health Engineering Research is a place where faculty, students and alumni find the collegiality, support, and guidance important for scholarship. As part of an advanced community of scholars CHER affiliates can review, dialog, and engage in a variety of activities aimed at developing and refining  their ideas, and increasing their skill at research and scholarship. Faculty have the ability to partcipate in CHER in several ways, as research affiliates, by serving on the advisory board, or as one of the selected Research Fellows for the Center.
