PRO-Health (Partners in Research & Outreach for Health) was established in 2006 to provide innovative programs aimed at improving the health of traditionally underserved populations through collaboration with community partners.
What we do
Identify at-risk groups to address several areas of health including
- Risk for chronic diseases
- Impact of stress and coping behaviors on one’s psychological health
- Effects of parents health and behaviors on their child’s health
Develop and Test community based programs that address:
- Stress management
- Exercise promotion
- Healthy eating
Our goal is to ensure that each of our programs is culturally-tailored and sustainable for the communities we serve in order to improve health care access and reduce health disparities.
