Canyon Ranch Center for Prevention and Health Promotion/Arizona Prevention Research Center

The Canyon Ranch Center for Prevention and Health Promotion (CRCPHP) is
dedicated to helping people achieve and maintain healthy lives by providing a
variety of opportunities that facilitate and support growth in all aspects of
health and well-being: physical, social, mental, spiritual, environmental,
and emotional. The CRCPHP fosters the collaboration of academic, community
and public health stakeholders by using research, education, advocacy,
awareness, and service delivery to improve the health and well-being of the
Tucson community by facilitating the practical application of strategies that
can assist individuals, communities, and societies in adopting and
maintaining healthy lifestyles. The Center houses diverse projects and
activities that have been guided by community-based participatory action
research to focus on the prevention of chronic disease in the border region.
Each project within the Center relies on extensive community involvement and
outreach. The Center houses the Arizona Prevention Research Center, which is
funded by the CDC's Prevention Research Center (PRC) Program. The PRC Program
is comprised of 37 academic institutions and is an interdependent network of
community, academic, and public health partners that conduct prevention
research and promote practices proven to promote good health.
