Research



Overview

Knowledge is power. It’s even more powerful when it’s shared.

We can all play a part in making our world a healthier place. At Kaiser Permanente, we do it by developing and disseminating knowledge in a myriad of ways. We train doctors and health care practitioners. We conduct world-class research in seven centers around the country to study the causes of disease, prevention strategies, new treatments and diagnostic procedures and more effective methods of delivering and financing health care. Then we share the results with the entire medical field, the communities we serve and policy makers. We also put our research into practice, creating practical programs that empower people to make smarter choices about diet, exercise and healthy living. In addition, we inform the public with Educational Theatre Programs designed to deliver powerful prevention messages about lifestyle choices. These are just some of the ways our commitment to this work comes through. Read on to discover more.
