To advance the health of all
Objectivity: We strive to collect data and present it in clear, compelling, and actionable ways, checking our blind spots so that our thinking and decisions are free from bias or preconceived beliefs.
Efficiency: We value the time, talent, and treasure entrusted to us and strive to use those resources, both human and financial, to accomplish our goals in a timely and fiscally responsible manner.
Innovation: We lean on evidence-informed practices to advance our work and organization, and also continuously look for ways to improve our approach, our methods, ourselves, and the field of public health.
Equity: We recognize that everyone should have the opportunity to fully participate in and benefit from our work, especially those who have been historically excluded.
