Examples of funded projects...
Each Center dedicates core resources to support a particular research theme. These themes reflect their areas of expertise, or the needs of the population they serve. A particular emphasis is to address disparities accessing effective health promotion and disease prevention services. For example, the causes of excess mortality in Harlem, promoting healthy lifestyles in American Indians and focusing on the health of older adults. Many of the research projects are also in specific areas of importance addressing the Healthy People 2000 and 2010 Objectives. The Prevention Research Centers focus on solutions for disadvantaged communities and promote disease prevention and health promotion strategies among the following population groups: children and youth, older adults and disabled persons; African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, American Indians, and rural populations. In addition, some Centers select a particular intervention as a core research theme, such as nutrition, physical activity and workplace health promotion.
