Health Promotion Research Center at Dartmouth (HPRCD)

At the HPRCD we identify needs, provide technical assistance, and implement and study evidence-based practices that systematically address two of the CDC's primary "Winnable Battles": Obesity and Tobacco Use.

Among our many partners include mental health provider organizations, primary care provider networks, state agencies, and community organizations. The HPRCD has a special interest in high-risk populations with obesity and/or tobacco dependence receiving care in community mental health centers and in primary care settings.

HPRCD activities include:

  • Mentoring early research career investigators.
  • Piloting health promotion coaching and mobile health interventions.
  • Support for nationwide research including a study on implementation of integrated health promotion in 48 sites across the country.
