Health Forecasting at UCLA

Director's Welcome

Welcome to the UCLA Health Forecasting website! We are one of many projects at the Center for Health Advancement which aim to provide data driven support tools to improve health. 

I founded the Health Forecasting project in 2002 with the intention of bridging public health planning and evidence-based research.  Over the past fifteen years we have expanded our project to counties throughout California, including Los Angeles, Orange, Placer, Riverside, ad San Bernardino as well as the states of Arkansas, and Wisconsin.

We are fortunate to have worked with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, California Community Foundation, the California Endowment, the National Institutes of Health, UniHealth Foundation, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

I invite you to test the Health Forecasting tool to see how your organization or population can benefit from our work.  If you would like a complimentary workshop, custom community health forecast or health snapshot, please contact us at

Thank you for visiting our website!
