Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

The Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention is a transdisciplinary center within ASU’s Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation. The center collaborates with community partners to enhance the health and well being of vulnerable populations across the lifespan. Led by Director Gabriel Shaibi with input from a team of seasoned researchers and staff members, the center is structured around three main cores that include research, training, and community engagement. Through the activities of these cores, the center conducts and disseminates extramurally-funded research, supports the training of the next generation of health promotion and disease prevention scholars, and engages local community members, agencies, and stakeholders to support the translation of research findings into real-world applications.
