As of July 1, 2014, the Center for Health Care and Policy Research is being led by a new director, Dr. Dennis Scanlon.

Dr. Scanlon, a professor of Health Policy and Administration (HPA), will build on the strong foundation established by former director, Dr. Pamela Farley Short.

Joining the HPA faculty in 1997, Dr. Scanlon also holds visiting and adjunct appointments at The Medical University of South Carolina. He has closely been associated with the Center, leading the evaluation component of the Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) project, which is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s signature effort to lift the overall quality of health care in targeted communities, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and provide models for national health care reform.

Dr. Scanlon was also selected as the 2014 recipient of the Evan G. and Helen G. Pattishall Outstanding Research Achievement Award, which honors a faculty member in our college who has "advanced the frontiers of knowledge in his or her field."
