Tools and Training for Public Health Research and Practice

A major objective of the Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Program is to conduct innovative, community-level public health research to prevent chronic disease, especially among populations experiencing health disparities. PRCs identify public health problems and develop, test, and evaluate solutions that can be shared widely and applied within the public health system.

The UMD-PRC provides various tools and training opportunities for mental and public health practitioners, including assessments, factsheets, toolkits, webinars, and workshops.
