The UMass Worcester Prevention Research Center works to encourages people to be physically active, to eat healthy foods, and to be at a healthy weight. We do this by researching new ways for people, organizations, and communities to be healthy through partnerships between researchers and community organizations.

The UMass Worcester Prevention Research Center was established in 2009 to foster applied public health research in collaboration with state and local departments of public health, community and health care partners. We are a member of the Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Program, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The PRC Program supports a network of over 35 centers to bring together academic researchers, public health agencies, and community members to conduct applied research in disease prevention and control.

This collection showcases journal articles and other publications and presentations authored by researchers in the UMass Worcester Prevention Research Center.
