The Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center

A CDC Prevention Research Center

The Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center (PRC) was established in 1998 through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are part of the CDC’s Prevention Research Centers network of 26 academic research centers across the United States. All PRCs work with community partners to develop, implement, and evaluate community-based approaches to help prevent and control chronic diseases. They are leaders at the scientific forefront of translating and implementing evidence-based programs.

Our PRC is co-housed at Yale University in New Haven and at Griffin Hospital in Derby. This co-location enables us to partner with the city of New Haven and the diverse smaller communities of the Lower Naugatuck Valley in Connecticut. In addition, our PRC serves as a resource to the State of Connecticut, and maintains other partnerships at the state, national, and international levels.
