The Christie Foundation’s mission
The mission of the Christie Foundation is to study and analyze issues of public interest in the areas of health care generally and in connection with higher education. To promote collaboration and achieve greater synergy in addressing issues in such areas, thereby overcoming structural barriers to solving problems in the fields of health care and higher education in the United States and globally, and to produce and publicize research and other materials in furtherance of these endeavors.
