Areas of Focus

Group collaborating


As we continue our platform of service and seeding new collaborations, in 2020 we will also focus on several goals:

  • Developing and training the health care workforce of tomorrow, one that is sustainable and resilient;
  • Reducing the impact and incidence of cancer on Minnesotans and our families;
  • Driving cross-disciplinary, statewide collaborations to tackle today’s complex issues (including opioid use);
  • Expanding our interprofessional work in our partner health systems; and
  • Working to partner statewide on health care access and care challenges.


Priorities are important in order to drive action, but as events around us change, we will continue to evolve. We will also support the University’s strategic plan and President Joan Gabel’s initiatives to ensure mental health and wellbeing on campus.
