Prevention Research Center of Michigan (PRC/MI)


The Prevention Research Center of Michigan conducts community-based research to improve health and prevent disease, especially focusing on populations with a disproportionate share of poor health outcomes. The PRC/MI conducts research and develops evidence-based programs that address a range of public health issues including violence prevention, HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and obesity. Our research is conducted in partnership with community based organizations, state and local health departments, health service providers and schools. Our research has led to the development of evidence-based programs and models of practice that can be adapted and implemented by other communities. Programs include: HOPE (HIV/STI Outreach, Promotion and Education), YES (Youth Empowerment Solutions), Speak To Your Health! Community Surveys, and Fathers and Sons.
