CCH News

open houseOn November 14, 2017, we hosted a very successful Open House for our university and community partners to share our new name—Center for Community Health & Prevention (CCHP)—and our new brand identity. Nearly 100 people attended the event, including university faculty and staff from other departments, community partners, as well as current and former Center staff. You can view a video of presentations by our Director Dr. Nana Bennett and Dr. Mark Taubman, URMC CEO, Dean of the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and Senior Vice President for Health Sciences at the University on our Facebook page.


The Center for Community Health & Prevention was established by the University of Rochester Medical Center to develop and expand academic-community health partnerships dedicated to improving the health of our community. It represents a new model of institutional commitment to community health that focuses on prevention. View our 2016-2017 Report to the Community.
