PRC Success Stories
  
   
The PRC network is funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and consists of 26 academic centers in 24 states. The PRC network became a reality in 1986 after Congress authorized funding for academic health centers to conduct community-based public health research. The PRCHN at Case Western Reserve University fosters community partnerships to help prevent and reduce the burden of chronic disease.
 
As part of the PRC network's 30th anniversary, we are sharing a few of the many success stories from our work here at the PRCHN and highlights from other members of the national PRC network across the country.
