Research

Since BHCHP’s inception as a program, the Institute has led the way in research on homeless health care, fostering research by both internal and external investigators.

Our research portfolio is led by our Director of Research, Travis Baggett, MD, MPH. Please contact us at institute@bhchp.org if you are interested in learning more about the process for conducting or participating in research with BHCHP. Investigators are asked to complete a brief application and research proposal which is evaluated by Institute staff for scientific merit, alignment with Institute priority areas, impact on patients, readiness and prior training of the researcher(s), and any accommodations or supports required of our program. All research projects are expected to obtain Institutional Review Board approval.

We also host bi-monthly Research In Progress meetings to allow study leads to present on their progress, identify challenges, and brainstorm solutions with a multidisciplinary group of researchers of all levels.
