About Us

We focus on the pressing 
health and health care issues 
facing our communities.

MSPHI is a nonprofit entity established in 2011 to protect and improve the health and well-being of Mississippians.

The Institute serves as a partner and convener to promote health, improve outcomes and encourage innovations in health systems. We cultivate partnerships aimed at program innovation, health resources, education, applied research, and policy development. When it comes to helping Mississippians lead healthier lives and get the care they need, MSPHI is making a difference today.

MSPHI promotes public health through projects in policy evaluation, community health, data analysis, and health access. MSPHI works with programs that find inventive ways to solve health issues and promote healthy and active living in Mississippi.


Staff have expertise in clinical health outcomes, medicine, health law, policy, public health, education, information technology, evaluation, social and behavioral health, and health systems.
