Our Mission

To develop, implement and evaluate evidence-based approaches to strengthen community capacity for sustained disease prevention and health promotion.

Focus Research

The Florida Prevention Research Center (FPRC) uses community-based prevention marketing (CBPM) for systems change to develop, adapt, implement, evaluate, and disseminate evidence-based approaches to strengthen state and local health departments’ and community coalitions’ capacity for sustained disease prevention and health promotion. The FPRC’s health priority will be the reduction of cancer disparities, and the core research project for the next five years will focus on the promotion of colorectal cancer screening (CRCS).  


The College of Public Health at the University of South Florida is the parent organization for the Florida Prevention Research Center and is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cooperative agreement number 1-U48-DP-005024.
