This session will provide an overview of efforts to evaluate the Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Program, a network of academic research centers that conduct applied public health prevention research. The session will include examples that illustrate how PRCs’ inputs, activities, and outputs support the PRC Program’s intended public health mission to improve community and population health through public health prevention research and strategic partnerships with communities and public health agencies. Presentations will first detail the process of and evidence behind developing the PRC Program’s evaluation plan and show how academic centers work with partners to address the CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP)’s four domains.
