The mission of the JHSPH Lerner Center is to develop, implement, and disseminate innovative and effective communication strategies and programs to prevent chronic diseases, promote equity, and improve public health.
The Lerner Center work is grounded in four pillars.
Education and Training.
We develop easily accessible, comprehensive education and training resources that serve as a pathway for communities to promote healthy behaviors.
We focus research on health promotion to understand the motivations and barriers to behavior change and apply the learnings to campaigns and interventions.
We equip health practitioners and organizations with creative, evidence-based community engagement strategies that are essential to positive behavior change.
Policy and Advocacy.
We research and disseminate evidence-based public health policies that result in long-term, population-wide health improvement.
