Mission

 

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.
