Because of our ties to New Mexico’s communities, the PRC is uniquely situated to design and introduce prevention strategies that are tailored to New Mexico citizens. By working together with local attitudes, values and beliefs, and by making the most of community resources, we simultaneously address multiple health risk factors.
The PRC actively collaborates with a number of communities around New Mexico. We have partnerships with over 100 communities and organizations in the state and around the country.
Our collaborations with these partner organizations have increased our opportunities to expand our prevention research and dissemination to cover a wide range of New Mexico citizenry, and to enhance our funding opportunities. Over the years we have steadily increased our work on children’s health issues with New Mexico communities through our ACL Teen Center programs, through the design and fielding of the Youth Risk & Resiliency Survey, through an enhanced role in the evaluation of Tobacco Cessation Programming around the state, and through further dissemination of the Pathways curriculum.
We anticipate further expanding our network of organizations, communities, and partners around the state and around the country, through upcoming work in research advocacy, expansion of the PAHL curriculum, the Teen Centers, student diabetes and HIV prevention assessment, school-based nutrition education programs, and work with other PRC's to evaluate their research dissemination activities.
