Stanford Prevention Research
Stanford Prevention Research Center (SPRC) is an interdisciplinary
research program involving several departments in the School
of Medicine at Stanford University. The mission of the SPRC
is to be at the forefront of improving population health
through interdisciplinary research focusing on the determinants
of chronic disease and on the development and dissemination
of innovative chronic disease prevention strategies.
The center conducts problem-focused
research, using mainly experimental methods, to test and
disseminate disease prevention and control programs. The
SPRC involves collaboration among a broad array of health
professionals and social and behavioral scientists sharing
public health and population perspectives in planning and
Active Choices, one of the
Active for Life interventions, was developed at
the Stanford Prevention Research Center.
