A sustainable society depends on the health and wellbeing of its people regardless
of age, race, gender, or economic status. Through innovative research into health
and disease, CAS researchers help to identify the behaviors, treatments, and cures
that create and sustain human health.
Individual human health can only be achieved and sustained in the context of communities
that value and support healthy behaviors and practices. CAS researchers seek to identify
the elements of civil society that promote safety, security, social justice and wellbeing.
Just as healthy people depend upon their communities to support their values and choices,
so too do communities rely on natural ecosystems for their sustainable success. CAS
researchers conduct innovative research that explores trends in the world to help
prevent environmental degradation and catastrophe.
