We conduct research to achieve health equity by optimizing social-emotional, mental, and physical health.
The Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center (RMPRC) is housed in the Colorado School of Public Health on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The RMPRC is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
funded Prevention Research Center (PRC). As a PRC, we work to identify public health problems and focus on
the development, testing and evaluation of public health interventions
that can be applied widely, particularly in underserved communities.
We will integrate social justice and equity principles into our program’s culture and curriculum to promote health and wellness best practices which highlight and honor the histories and cultures of the communities we serve. We will be driven by goals that are clearly outlined, tracked, measured, and that have accountability systems that explicitly promote social justice and equity.
We conduct community-engaged research, improving well-being in underserved communities.
We provide evaluation, partner engagement, and training and dissemination services.
