What is Prevention Science

The goal of prevention science is to foster health and well-being at all levels of society. Prevention science recognizes that the individual, family, community, and larger sociopolitical and physical environments in which we live are interdependent. It seeks to benefit all, with particular care for vulnerable populations. Prevention science is transdisciplinary; it insists on collaboration; and it includes quantitative and qualitative research. Our programs, our work, embody prevention science. To learn more about prevention science click here
