The NYU-CUNY PRC is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cooperative agreement number U48DP005008.
A core mission of the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH), in partnership with the NYU School of Medicine, is to shape policy and practice in public health for all, and promote and sustain healthier populations in New York City and around the world. In direct alignment with that mission, the NYU-CUNY Prevention Research Center (NYU-CUNY PRC) was established in 2014 to implement, evaluate, and disseminate community-clinical linkage interventions to reduce cardiovascular disease disparities in ethnically diverse communities in NYC.
The private-public institution partnership’s objectives are to:
- Implement provider-based and community-based health interventions
- Monitor and evaluate large public health initiatives
- Emphasize collaborative research with multi-sector stakeholders and translate research findings into sustainable and scalable policies and programs
- Develop and implement training programs that build capacity and leadership of public health and clinical practitioners to conduct evidence-based research and interventions using community-clinical linkage strategies
