The San Diego Prevention Research Center (SDPRC) was one of 11 prevention research centers (PRCs) nationwide to receive the National Community Committee's inaugural best-practices award this spring.
The award recognizes PRCs that make a significant effort to follow best practices in creating equal partnerships between academic and community members as a means of involving the community in all aspects of the research process. The National Community Committee is associated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is comprised of community representatives from all 37 PRCs.
The SDPRC also received the National Community Committee’s Community Partnership Engagement Award.
