Welcome to the website for the Emory Prevention Research Center (EPRC). We are dedicated to improving the lives of Georgia residents by developing and testing innovative interventions, evaluating promising practices, and training practitioners on evidence-based practices to prevent cancer and other chronic diseases. We are located in Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health. Please take a moment to browse our website and learn more about the EPRC.
The EPRC’s Healthy Homes Healthy Families trial results were just published in The American Journal of Public Health. The publication, “Impact of Improving Home Environments on Energy Intake and Physical Activity: A Randomized Controlled Trial” shows that the intervention, developed using a CBPR approach, was effective in preventing weight gain and improving home environments for low-income, primarily African American women.
We are excited to announce that the Emerging Science in State and Community Tobacco Control Policy and Practice forum will be held on May 4, 2016, in Washington, D.C. Hear dialogue among policymakers, researchers, and practitioners about the critical needs and lessons learned in state and community tobacco control.
