Working with communities from within to prevent and reduce chronic disease.

Our projects reflect our mission through their involvement of neighborhood residents, leaders, and community organizations with the goal of addressing significant environmental and lifestyle issues that serve as barriers to good health.

Our center publishes findings from our research for academic and community partners through journal articles, presentations, data briefs & reports, media highlights, infographics and toolkits. 

We are committed to fostering partnerships within urban neighborhoods to develop, test, and implement effective, scalable, and sustainable strategies to prevent and reduce the burden of chronic disease.

The PRCHN is committed to providing training & mentoring opportunities to help train the next generation of public health researchers and increase research capacity in our community. 

The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods was established at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in 2009.
