Our Mission

We are focused on promoting knowledge transfer from basic science and clinical trials to multigenerational practice, services, education, and policy. By translating evidence-based results into practice and policy settings, we disseminate lessons learned to ensure that programming and training strengthen communities and are culturally relevant. We partner with community members, scholars, students, service providers, and policymakers to ensure our work has real and measurable impact. Through strengthening prevention practices, we improve the health, well-being, and longevity across generations and communities.
