Preventive Medicine Research

The mission of the Department of Preventive Medicine is to improve public health and reduce the burden of chronic disease, especially in underserved populations, through high-quality research, service and education. Our long track record of research success includes clinical trials, longitudinal studies and multicenter drug trials. Thanks to a $10 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, our Center for Urban Health Equity is investigating how various lifestyle and behavioral interventions can alleviate health inequities in heart and lung diseases.
