Health Politics Data Initiative

The Health Politics Data Initiative is a large-scale data collection and content analysis endeavor propelled forward by the efforts of talented undergraduate and graduate research assistants. In keeping with UTA's strategic plan, HPDI addresses health and the human condition using methods of data-driven discovery. Major themes of the project include disaster response and recovery, politics and policies related to the opioid epidemic, and disease-related advocacy. HPDI is co-directed by Drs. Sledge and Thomas.
