Health practitioners working in chronic disease can get support from Prevention Research Centers (PRCs). The centers are a network of 26 academic research centers that work with local communities to develop, test, and evaluate solutions to public health problems. PRCs conduct community-based applied public health research to address chronic diseases and other leading causes of death and disability in the United States. The CDC provides funding, leadership, technical assistance, and oversight for the PRC Program.
A webinar will be held Thursday, November 9, 3-4 p.m. ET to explain how your chronic disease unit can participate in and benefit from working in partnership with PRCs. The discussion will explore the possibilities for practitioners to advance health equity and evidence-based public health practice. Presenters will share an overview of the PRC Program, highlight the partnership between the PRC at the University of North Carolina and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, and recommend opportunities to begin collaborating with PRCs.
Learn more about PRCs and how to get involved on the CDC's website.
