Minnesota Research to Action Network
The Minnesota Public Health Research to Action Network launched in 2009 to stimulate public health systems and services research across Minnesota. The network was created to produce important new insights and relevant findings that can be used by practitioners and elected officials to improve public health services, organizations, and systems, and ultimately improve the health of Minnesotans.
