  Improving Connecticut's Health Through Information

Internships In Consumer Advocacy and Research

Who We Are: For almost a decade, the CT Health Policy Project has worked to improve access to affordable, quality health care for everyone in Connecticut. The Project serves as a trusted source of information for both policymakers and consumers. Every day, we get calls from people in Connecticut struggling to get the health care they and their families need. We help them negotiate complex systems and get the care that’s right for them. We bring that real-world experience back to local, state, and national policymakers with independent, balanced health policy information that cuts through the noise of special interests. We help policy-makers and consumers make the best decisions.
