About APTR

Bringing together individuals and institutions devoted to health promotion and disease prevention to redefine how we educate the health professions workforce.

Founded in 1942, the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) is the national membership association dedicated to advancing prevention and public health education, training, and research. 

Mission:

Lead innovation in population health and prevention education.

Vision:

Population health and prevention are integral parts of every health professional's education.

Our members include preventive medicine programs, graduate programs in public health, medical school departments with a population health focus, health professions schools, and faculty responsible for teaching population health. The APTR Council of Graduate Programs in Public Health supports those accredited and emerging graduate programs across the U.S. that grant a variety of public health degrees. 

What We Do

APTR develops curricular resources, professional development programs and tools for its diverse membership. Through cooperative agreements and grants with such federal agencies as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, APTR and its members conduct a wide range of educational, training, and research projects. 

The APTR annual meeting, Teaching Preventiongathers faculty from medicine, public health, and other health professions to focus on the knowledge, skills, collaborations, and resources needed to teach, practice, and promote population health improvement. 

Our Journal

The official APTR journal,The American Journal of Preventive Medicine publishes articles in the areas of prevention research, teaching, practice and policy. Original research is published on interventions aimed at the prevention of chronic and acute disease and the promotion of individual and community health. The journal also periodically publishes supplements and special theme issues devoted to areas of current interest to the prevention community.
