About Us

The PRC-StL is an exciting collaboration between Saint Louis University College of Social Justice and Public Health, Washington University in St. Louis (Brown School and School of Medicine), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and numerous local communities. During the first fifteen years of the center, we have witnessed a rapid rate of growth and productivity. Such lively development has allowed us to surpass our early research goals, to publish study results, and most importantly, to begin realizing positive changes in the communities that we serve.

We thank our community partners for their dedication and our PRC-StL team for their commitment to our mission. Without the partnership and collaboration of the PRC-StL it would be difficult, if not impossible, to achieve our goals. We are proud of the work to date and look forward to even greater achievements in the future.
