Who We Are

George Mason students operate an official student chapter of AcademyHealth, which is a national organization that serves the health services and policy research fields and the professionals who perform this important work.

The George Mason AcademyHealth chapter focuses on enhancing the learning and professional development experiences for students in health services research and health policy. The chapter had adopted bylaws to regulate its operation.
