Health Promotion Research Center at Dartmouth (HPRCD)

The Health Promotion Research Center at Dartmouth is one of 26 Prevention Research Centers funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The mission of the HPRCD is to measurably decrease cardiovascular risk factors by identifying needs, providing technical assistance, and implementing and studying evidence-based practices that address two of the CDC’s primary “Winnable Battles”: Obesity and Tobacco Use. The HPRCD has a special focus on high-risk populations with obesity and/or tobacco dependence receiving care in community mental health centers and in primary health care settings. Activities also include mentoring early research career investigators and students, piloting health promotion coaching and mobile health interventions, and a study on implementation of integrated health promotion in mental health organizations across the nation.

Individuals will be onsite to answer any questions you may have.
