PRC National Research Networks

We currently participate in the following CDC Prevention Research Center networks:

  • Alliance for Reducing Cancer, Northwest (ARC NW) collaborates with local community partners to build infrastructure, with the goal of setting the groundwork for future research opportunities. HPRC is one of eight sites of the national PRC Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network. (PI: Peggy Hannon, PhD, MPH)
  • Healthy Brain Research Network (HBRN) HPRC is the coordinating center for this thematic network, working with the CDC Healthy Aging Program-Healthy Brain Initiative, national and regional PRCs and other partners. HBRN will establish a public health research and translation agenda for cognitive health and healthy aging and develop and support a coordinated HBRN fellowship program. (PI: Basia Belza, PhD, RN, FAAN)
  • Managing Epilepsy Well (MEW) participants are working to improve the quality of life for those with epilepsy. Network members conduct research to advance epilepsy self-management. The HPRC MEW member center is developing an epilepsy self-management program tailored to the needs of community-dwelling adults and U.S. veterans. (PI: Robert Fraser, PhD)
  • Workplace Health Research Network (WHRN) This newly formed network will forus on Total Worker Health, use of social networks and behavioral economics to enhance workplace participation in health promotion, and dissemination of evidence-based interventions. The HPRC member center is conducting a pilot project testing a scalable means of marrying the chronic-disease-prevention expertise of local health department staff with the need of smaller, low-wage workplaces for expert information and implementation assistance (PI: Jeff Harris, MD, MPH, MBA)
