In the midst of the devastation and disruption of a global pandemic, faculty and staff across the Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research have found new ways to come together and continue our important work.
The Institute is committed to ensuring New Jersey communities have access to up-to-date information and reliable facts. With the first approved vaccines now available and clinical trials continuing to advance around the world, the Institute is partnering with community organizations and groups to present educational programs and have important conversations about COVID-19 vaccines and research.

Translations are completed by IFH research assistants and volunteers, and are shared on Twitter accounts with language-specific hashtags. The Institute also partners with the TV Asia network to provide updates for daily newscasts in Hindi and Gujarati.
