The Center for Health Innovation serves as a regional resource and academic partner to communities seeking to promote a culture of health across Long Island. We define health as more than physical well-being, or absence of disease or injury. It is a constellation of factors—economic, social, political, ecological, cultural, psychological and physical—that comprise healthy, high-quality lives for individuals and communities.
Maintain and advance Adelphi University as a regional resource for expert health information about current and emergent public health issues.
Provide an infrastructure for interdisciplinary, community and business partnerships for applied research and improvement of community health.
Support faculty development focused on health innovation to increase Adelphi University’s national reputation and recognition.
