3370.0 Academic-Community partnerships for research: Prevention Research Centers

Monday, October 29, 2012: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
The Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) are a national network of 37 academic research centers, each at either a school of public health or a medical school that has a preventive medicine residency program. Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PRCs are committed to conducting prevention research and are leaders in translating research results into policy and public health practice. These centers have rich capacity for the community-based, participatory prevention research needed to drive the major community changes that can prevent and control chronic diseases. The PRCs work as an interdependent network of community, academic, and public health partners to conduct prevention research and promote the wide use of practices proven to promote good health. This session will showcase the collaborative work of PRCs engaged in community-based participatory research for the development, evaluation and dissemination of public health promotion interventions, policies and programs.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify key components of successful academic-community partnerships 2. Describe lessons learned from collaborative research projects 3. Discuss the benefits accrued to both researchers and communities from partnering together
