Prevention Research Center

The Morehouse School of Medicine Prevention Research Center (PRC) was established in 1998. MSM PRC is one of a network of academic research centers funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to achieve local and national health objectives focused on gaining knowledge about the best methodologies for solving the nation's obstinate health problems. These centers engage in interdisciplinary applied prevention research in collaboration with community partners; federal, state, and local health and education agencies; and other universities.

The theme of the PRC is: Risk Reduction and Early Detection in African American and Other Minority Communities: Coalition for Prevention Research. The mission is to advance scientific knowledge in the field of prevention in African American and other minority communities and to disseminate new information and strategies of prevention.
