Prevention Research Center partners with groups across South Carolina

The University of South Carolina Prevention Research Center (USC PRC) envisions "Communities that support physical activity and healthy eating for all people." We engage community and organizational partners in research, practice, technical assistance, and training to benefit the health of underserved communities and the community at large.

The Prevention Research Center at the University of South Carolina has been funded since 1993 as part of the Prevention Research Centers Program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The PRC envisions Communities that Support Physical Activity and Healthy Eating for All People. To achieve our vision, we are committed to conducting research and to translating that research into practice to improve the health of individuals, families, and communities.
