The mission of the Tulane Prevention Research Center (PRC) is to reduce or prevent overweight and obesity in the Greater New Orleans Area by addressing the physical and social environmental factors influencing physical activity and diet. The Tulane PRC’s mission is accomplished through research; collaboration with community partners and policy makers; communication about environmental factors related to physical activity and diet with public health practitioners, policy makers and community partners; and training of public health professionals, paraprofessional and community members.
