The Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research

Our Mission

The mission of the UTHealth Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research (CHPPR) is to conduct research to develop, evaluate, and disseminate health promotion and disease prevention programs, with a particular focus on decreasing cancer-related and chronic disease health disparities among African American and Hispanic populations.

CHPPR is proud to be the only CDC Prevention Research Center (PRC) in the state of Texas. As one of 26 PRCs nationwide, CHPPR is part of a collaborative network of research centers focused on the study of how people and communities can avoid or counter the risks for chronic illnesses, particularly among underserved populations.
