PRC 30th Anniversary
In 1984, Congress authorized the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to create a network of academic health centers to conduct applied public health research, and in 1986 the first three Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) were funded. Thirty years later there are 26 CDC-designated PRCs nationally, working with at-risk communities to promote health and prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes by addressing research gaps and translating research findings into effective prevention programs. The UAB Center for the Study of Community Health is proud to be a continuously funded PRC since 1993.
