About the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics

The Mission of the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics is to conduct rigorous research, develop health policy leaders, and broadly communicate solutions to promote health, well-being, and value in healthcare delivery. With its extraordinary breadth and depth of expertise, the Schaeffer Center will have a vital impact on the transformation of healthcare.

The Schaeffer Center was established in 2009 at USC with a generous gift from Leonard and Pamela Schaeffer.  It is the result of a unique collaboration between the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and School of Pharmacy.
