The MU Institute of Public Policy has contracted for several new projects recently in the policy areas of health and community. New health projects include Research on Paid Leave in Missouri, Evaluating the Impact of Medicaid Expansion in Missouri, and An Innovative Model to Increase Primary Care Physicians for Rural and Underserved Missouri: Supplemental Funding. These projects seek to evaluate and improve access to paid leave, Medicaid, and healthcare for rural and underserved Missourians.

The ParentLink Kinship Navigator Program Evaluation, a community project, seeks to evaluate services that assist kinship caregivers with connections to information, support, and services for children being cared for by relatives.
