Texas Research-to-Policy Collaboration Project

The Texas Research-to-Policy Collaboration (TX RPC) Project is a network of non-partisan health researchers in Texas to support policymakers’ legislative priorities in preparation for the Texas Legislative Session. The TX RPC Project provides data-driven information that is tailored to legislative districts, which can be a powerful tool for developing and implementing health policies in Texas. The TX RPC Project supports legislators by:

  1. Providing Texas-level data and research
  2. Sharing current research on health issues
  3. Establishing partnerships between researchers and policymakers

View slides from our latest presentation to see how the TX RPC Project can provide data-driven research and resources for your legislative office. Please contact Kathleen Manuel or Tiffni Menendez should you be interested in joining the TX RPC Project.


The Texas RPC project is conducted by the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at the UTHealth School of Public Health in Austin, with project funding provided by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation.
