The Center for Public Health Practice and Research engages in efforts to improve the health status of rural and underserved communities through provision of high-level technical assistance, education, public health research, and program/process evaluation services to public and rural health agencies, organizations and other business models. Consistent with the College’s mission, the Center seeks to be recognized as a leader in the area of outreach to the public health practice community by serving as a valuable resource to rural and underserved populations in the Southeast.

The philosophy of the Center is active community engagement at local, state and national levels. The Center will facilitate relationships with Georgia’s rural and public health systems and the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health faculty and students.
