• Bringing the primary care perspective to policy decisions.

    The Robert Graham Center offers insights on primary care physicians and patients to ensure policy development reflects their unique needs. Insights are offered as reports, presentations and published articles, plus interactive maps, data displays and curriculum.

    The Center exists to improve individual and population healthcare delivery through the generation of evidence that brings a primary care perspective to health policy.

    From its inception, it was decided that the Center’s activity would be a blend of research to support the Academy’s policy development and advocacy efforts and Center-initiated studies.

    The Robert Graham Center regularly partners with individuals and institutions to conduct or support primary care research and to expand its capacity for such research.

    From medical education and workforce to access to care and public and community health, read historical reports of the Center's activity and areas of focus.


    Who We Are
