The EHSRC mission is to improve the health and quality of life of individuals, families, and communities in Puerto Rico through the development of new knowledge about health diseases and health care disparities.

Our main goal is to enhance research initiatives related to health care disparities and quality of life that impact the Puerto Rican community. We aimed to integrate the expertise from the fields of medicine, public health, and social sciences to evaluate issues pertaining to the delivery and quality of health care in Puerto Rico, the impact of changes in health care systems and models, and the development and dissemination of best practices best on outcomes.
