Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center (PRC)

The Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center is an international leader in prevention science.

Since 1998, the PRCs focus has been on improving the health and well-being of children, families, and communities, particularly those most vulnerable. We conduct research, provide technical assistance, develop, implement and evaluate innovative programs, and translate research to policy. Our goal is to prevent the development of behavioral, mental, academic and physical problems in children, youth, and parents by creating healthy, caring and compassionate, nurturing environments.
