At PHSRP we focus on projects that aim to improve public health. We align ourselves with government agencies and organizations that share our goal. Our goal is to provide policy makers accurate and precise data allowing them to make evidence-based decisions in their legislative and health policy endeavors. We have collected public health information regarding cancer prevalence, tobacco use and control, alcohol consumption, and more. Our program has a multi-lingual Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI) lab, allowing us to conduct thousands of phone health interviews every year.
