The Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE), based in New Haven CT, extends the PRC’s mission to improve the health of community residents. CARE, in partnership with the New Haven community, is working in tandem with the PRC in taking action against chronic diseases and other challenges that threaten the health of community members.

Further Study Details:

Since its founding in 2007 at the Yale School of Public Health, CARE has worked to identify solutions to improve the health of New Haven residents through community-based research/projects focusing on social, environmental, and behavioral risk factors. As of 2016, the Yale-Griffin PRC and CARE are now partnering with the School of Health and Human Services at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) to enhance its own efforts to improve the health of New Haven residents. CARE will undergo a 3-year transition of its home base from Yale University to the SCSU campus, with SCSU assuming responsibility for its community engagement work. The Yale School of Public Health will remain as the central hub of CARE’s research activities, with a focus on data analysis from its New Haven Public Schools and neighborhood health surveys.  CARE founder and PRC Principal Investigator Jeannette Ickovics, PhD now serves in an advisory capacity.
