Our History

Health Studies Collegium (HSC), a 501(c)3 a non-profit foundation, was established in 1990 by a group of distinguished scholars whose intent was to create a biotechnology institute. Holding a collaborative vision, the Collegium’s like-minded members shared a commitment to scientific tolerance, intellectual diversity and open access to knowledge. For over 20 years, HSC has focused on researching the mechanisms of health, and conducting community-based, randomized controlled trials to test the clinical and cost-effectiveness of health promotion models.
