Celebrating the PRC Network
The 30-year history of the PRC Program reflects the growing recognition of the importance of prevention research as a vital, integral component of public health. To help celebrate the PRC Program's anniversary, the American Journal of Preventive Medicine published a special supplement showcasing the translation of public health research of the PRC Program since 1986, when CDC began funding academic institutions to complete demonstration projects.
