Prevention Research Centers
The Johns Hopkins Center for Adolescent Health is one of the 26 academic research centers that comprise the Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) Program.
The PRC Program is a national network of academic, community, and public health partners that (1) conducts applied public health research and (2) promotes the wide use of practices proven to promote good health. The PRC Program is supported by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CA# 1U48DP005045-01). Learn more about the PRC Program on the CDC website.
