Welcome to the Prevention Research Center site.  One of the underpinnings of Health Sciences and Nursing is the emphasis on preventive health. This research center will promote optimal health through community-based research and education. We look forward to benefiting not only members of our community, but disseminating our research findings for the health betterment of everyone. 

Core Mission

To promote community health through education, promotion, and translational research. Translational research discovers which strategies work in the community: the community of youth, or the community of women, or the community of senior citizens - all at high risk.

The Center brings experts from OU and the community together to make a difference in people's lives.
