Centers and Projects
The Center for Health Promotion, which was established in 1981, has comprised diverse working groups of faculty and students interested in stimulating research and development efforts responsive to national priorities in health promotion and disease prevention. Historically, the work of participating faculty and students has spanned both basic and applied research and development, and has included projects focusing on the influences of personal behavior on health status, as well as how educational and behavioral intervention can be used to improve health and prevent premature death and disability throughout the human lifespan through schools, patient care, workplace, and other community-based settings. Current grant and subcontract projects include: NIH/NHLBI Motivational Interview-ing in Hypertensive African-Americans; NIH/NHLBI Translational Behavioral Science Consortium: Motivating Health Behaviors in Patients with Cardiopulmonary Disease; and NIH/NHLBI Trial of Asthma Patient Education in the Emergency Room.
