What we do


The National Institute for Community Health Education (NICHE) provides the public with balanced, in-depth discussion on health care issues. NICHE draws on the expertise of Connecticut hospitals, corporations, and health maintenance organizations to provide this information and draw attention to the state’s preeminence in health care delivery, development, and finance. NICHE also develops and publishes surveys on health care issues by the Quinnipiac University Poll.
