Center for Health Promotion & Prevention Research (CHPPR)

Grand Forks, ND

The Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research (CHPPR) at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences was originally established in 2001. CHPPR was established with federal funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) through the initial efforts of North Dakota's congressional delegation.

The mission of the Center is to assist public health and other community partners in reducing and preventing chronic diseases caused by unhealthy behaviors such as tobacco use, poor nutrition, and sedentary lifestyles. Two main goals have been established to accomplish this mission:

  1. to provide education, training, consultation, and evaluation services to students, healthcare providers, and public health organizations involved in health promotion and disease prevention;
  2. to develop, implement, and evaluate evidence-based prevention programs delivered in North Dakota schools, clinics, and worksites.
