Transforming Lives, Eliminating Health Disparities

Healthcare is a team sport.

Throughout its history, the WVU Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center has successfully educated health professionals and provided leadership in healthcare delivery, public service, and research.

Yet, as we move through the second decade of this century, many of the health challenges that face our nation and our state remain ahead of us. We at the Health Sciences Center have a broad mandate to support WVU’s Strategic Plan in the following goal: “Enhance the wellbeing and the quality of life for the people of West Virginia.”

All of our health schools and healthcare organizations work together to transform lives for the better and to eliminate the health disparities that disadvantage West Virginians.
