Health Topics

When collaborators are geographically distributed across the nation, opportunities are enhanced for developing community partnerships and conducting community-based assessments, evaluation, and research with a wide variety of people. Research networks offer such a structure and can help put public health research findings into practice.

Working independently and together, network members conduct research that contributes to increasing the use of proven cancer prevention community-based interventions by state and local public health partners. Research focuses primarily on disseminating, implementing, and evaluating intervention strategies recommended for use by the U.S. Community Preventive Services Task Force as well as replicating recommended interventions in new populations and settings, and, to a lesser extent, assessing interventions that lack sufficient evidence of efficacy
