Our Public Policy Lab crew has been busy over the past year! We've worked with families in temporary housing, healthcare workers, justice reformers, and patients with limited digital access, on projects from New York to California. We're grateful to work alongside so many different Americans and the people who serve them!

Championing Infection Control with Healthcare Workers

We kicked off 2021 working in partnership with RTI International, on behalf of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), to understand how healthcare workers around the country are trained in infection-control practices. PPL led research and design activities to inform future trainings and empower frontline workers to be champions of infection control in their workplaces.

Helping Families of Students in Temporary Housing

Over the past two years, we've worked with the NYC Dept. of Education (DOE) and NYC Dept. of Homeless Services (DHS) to develop human-centered, cross-agency initiatives to coordinate between homeless shelters and schools, part of the NYC Mayor's Office program recently profiled by Gotham Gazette. In addition to creating a cross-training program for DOE and DHS staff, we also launched the STH Resource Guide, a one-stop website of resources for families of students living in temporary housing.

Advancing Digital Equity in Healthcare

For Kaiser Permanente, an innovative nonprofit healthcare system, we conducted research with people affected by the digital divide to understand their barriers to navigating digital healthcare offerings. We delivered new insights into marginalized patients' needs, in support of future efforts to make Kaiser's healthcare services more accessible for all. 

Providing Justice-Reform Services at Scale

PPL partnered with the Center for Court Innovation, a New York City nonprofit dedicated to justice-system reform, to enhance their ability to rapidly scale in response to new bail-reform programs. Two members of CCI's supervised-release staff embedded in our team, and together we conducted research with agency leadership, client-facing staff, and their direct managers, ultimately developing concepts for rapidly upscaling their supervised-release program teams.
Thank you!

This work would not be possible without our dedicated community of fellows, partners, board members, and all of you who cheer and encourage us as we work to make services by the people, for the people. Thank you! We’re grateful for you.
