The University of Iowa

Prevention Research Center

The University of Iowa Prevention Research Center (UI PRC) was first funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2002. The 26 Prevention Research Centers constitute a network of academic, community, and public health partners that conducts applied public health research. Our mission is to improve the health of rural communities in Iowa. We accomplish this by establishing and maintaining community partnerships, conducting research on health issues of mutual interest, and leveraging our collective resources in the most effective ways possible. Our research themes are nutrition, physical activity, and aging.
