Improving the conditions of work for vulnerable populations

The Center of Work, Health, & Well-being has received funding through 2026, to continue our work to identify and promote the workplace policies, programs, and practices that foster safe and healthy working conditions. The Center’s work is built around a conceptual model that identifies the many pathways through which conditions of work may influence health, safety, and well-being. A multi-disciplinary team of researchers focuses on generating and applying research evidence to advance policy and practice recommendations to improve working conditions; understanding contributors to work-related well-being and mental health; and identifying social and health disparities.
