About the Kiphart Center

The Susan and Richard Kiphart Center for Global Health and Social Development was established in 2021 with a generous gift from the Kiphart Family Foundation to advance research, training, and intervention to address global health, health equity, and social development around the world. Jointly administered by the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice and the Biological Sciences Division, the Kiphart Center builds on the work of the Center for Global Health at the University of Chicago, and brings together expertise and resources from across the university to support innovative work that transcends the disciplinary boundaries of public health, medicine, and the social sciences. Extending beyond biomedical approaches to health and development, the Kiphart Center focuses on the social determinants that impact health and well-being to build knowledge, train students, and support innovative community initiatives.
