A CDC Prevention Research Center
The Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center (PRC) is part of the Yale School of Public Health, based in New Haven CT, and co-housed at Griffin Hospital in Derby, CT.
Our PRC was established in 1998 through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We are part of the CDC’s Prevention Research Centers network of 25 academic research centers based in 22 states across the U.S. PRCs work with community partners to develop, implement, and evaluate community-based approaches to help prevent and control chronic diseases.
In addition to our community-based research funded by the CDC and other sources, the Yale-Griffin PRC also conducts clinical research to investigate the role of nutrition in promoting health and preventing chronic diseases.
