Systems Science in Health

Online Community for Researchers, Teachers, and Practitioners

Systems science is the study of interacting elements where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In health research, this describes a number of pressing social issues such as rising obesity, drug resistance, epidemics of infectious disease, and addiction. The goal of this site is to provide a community for researchers, teachers, and practitioners interested in studying and deploying systems science approaches to tackle pressing health challenges.
