Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods
The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRCHN) was formed in 2009 to address chronic health issues faced in disadvantaged neighborhoods in Greater Cleveland.
Housed in the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, the PRCHN is embarking on research that's truly in collaboration with neighborhoods impacted by poverty and chronic health conditions. This is possible in part through partnerships with: city and county health organizations, the Network of Community Advisors (NOCA), and four other schools at Case. The PRCHN will build on the successes of the Center for Health Promotion Research, a parallel organization also housed at Case.
The PRCHN is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of its Prevention Research Centers (PRC) program, which is now entering its 26th year and involves 37 centers in total. The primary aim of the PRCs is to reduce the rate of chronic disease in the most threatened populations across the U.S.
