APTR-CDC Cooperative Agreement - Past Projects

Since 1984, APTR has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to improve and increase collaborations between academic preventive medicine and public health. APTR is a recipient of the CDC Cooperative Agreement titled "CDC's Collaboration with Academia to Strengthen Public Health Workforce Capacity," and is one of four associations comprising the Academic Partnerships to Improve Health (APIH).

Past Grant Projects

  • Prevention Education Evaluation Subgrants [Link]
    This project examined and assessed institutions with education innovations developed through the “Institute for Interprofessional Prevention Education (IPE) Project” for current status and progress with their partnerships and community-based service-learning activities.  These institutions were considered early adopters and leaders in interprofessional prevention education in 2007 and 2008, when they participated in the APTR Institute.  The following reports describe the approaches that led to continued development and growth of innovative IPE initiatives on and off campus, as well as obstacles that impinged upon successful integration.

  • Interprofessional Prevention Education Evaluation Subgrants [Link]
    APTR seeks to advance the rigorous evaluation of the effectiveness of prevention education programs and the assessment of learner outcomes in order to understand, promote, and replicate successful practices.  Through the Prevention Education Evaluation Subgrants, two small evaluation projects were supported that focus on expanding the evidence base related to the impact of innovative teaching and academic-practice partnerships in prevention education. Grantees gathered qualitative and quantitative data on translation of classroom instruction and the contribution of service-learning.  The evaluations included data on administrative structure, support, and student outcomes.
