Join the Student-led Journal
Health Policy & Politics publishes articles that discuss the complex intersection of health policymaking and politics within the U.S. and other countries. We welcome a wide variety of topics for publication from different perspectives. The first issue will be published on-line in early September 2022, and will be published in the early spring and fall thereafter.
Join the Student Advisory Council
The purpose of the IHPP student advisory council is to provide a venue for Lehigh students to express their views and to provide recommendations to the Institute on specific initiatives that it may wish to consider, such as in the areas of research, teaching, and internship/experiential experiences. Its members will be student representatives from across several Lehigh colleges. To join the advisor council, please contact the IHPP Director Dr. Eduardo J. Gómez.
