Drs. Douglas Call, Eric Lofgren, Guy Palmer, and Shira Broschat are collaborators on the new Community Health Analytics Initiative, funded by the WSU Office of Research Grand Challenges grant program. The project will establish a large-scale interdisciplinary program in computational and analytics based health care and medical sciences research at WSU. With permanent University funds and matching college funds, the $5 million investment includes hiring two new faculty members in the Allen School. The initiative is a collaborative effort between the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, and the College of Veterinary Medicine.
