The Center for Community Health & Prevention is committed to educating students, faculty and staff about all aspects of community. We actively teach courses and lead lectures in the School of Medicine & Dentistry and School of Nursing, as well as in various graduate and undergraduate programs at the University of Rochester. Learning the importance of community-engaged interventions and research, as well as partnering with organizations in education, policy and social services, is critical to improving the health of our community.
We offer education and research training to better prepare those engaged in community-based research to translate research findings more quickly from the bench to the bedside to the community. Learn more by visiting Community-Engaged Research Training.
At the Center for Community Health & Prevention, we work with students from the University of Rochester, as well as many other local colleges, to connect them with agencies engaged in the work of community health. These connections enable students to have a variety of real-world public health experiences. For more information, please contact the Director of Community Health Policy and Education, Theresa Green, Ph.D., M.B.A.
The Center for Community Health & Prevention, along with URMC, functions as an informational resource, and also supports many educational programs and groups throughout the university community.
