Evidence-Based Preventive Research Centers
The health prevention centers have been designed to provide you with research to help you understand what you can do to prevent disease, live healthily, and learn about evidence-based strategies to improve and maintain your overall health. 

Women's health



Women, true nurturers of life are often confronted with multiple challenges in today's society.  The cultural and societal shifts have propelled women into new roles amazingly different from the traditional days of the past. Those new roles can often create disharmony, new stress and disconnection with self, family and loved ones. The importance of refocusing goals, nurturing inner harmony can balance your life despite societal stressors. Learn how to reenergize and bring balance back into your life. Visit the Women's Center to learn about what can be done to foster positive preventive health throughout all stages of life.

Men exercising



Research shows life expectancy has increased for men, however there still exists a 5-year gap between women and men.  Advances in medicine and research have contributed to many of those improvements, however men are confronted with adapting to a wide variety of  health challenges in today's society. Incorporating practices early on can maximize health for family, work and yourself. Incorporating a healthier diet and a daily physical fitness routine goes a long way in improving life outcomes.  Visit the Men’s Center to learn about what affects men, and what can be done to foster positive preventive health.

Keep a daily log of your physical activity and diet. Instead of fast foods, try a nice juicy apple or orange. It's not only less expensive but rich in vitamins and fiber.

Obesity has reached an all time high in the U.S. with 12.7 million children and adolescents falling into either an overweight or an obese category. The influences of social media and pop culture show unrealistic images, which can confuse children as they transcend into adulthood.  In addition, peer pressure, mental stress, autism, suicide, HIV and socialization issues continue to escalate while youth struggling to transform into productive adults. Parents are the child's first teacher, however young children can also optimize opportunities to learn about their individual health. Visit the Youth Center to learn about what can be done to foster positive preventive health. 

Children love having fun and activity. Take them to parks, the beach and other places where they can run and play. Find out what they like to do as a hobbie and cultivate their talent.

Global health



The United States ranks 37th in the world related to healthcare.  The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is one of the first steps to overhaul a disconnected healthcare system in the U.S.  Global health has become a valuable contributor to many novel medical discoveries for the prevention of diseases such as SARS-CoV-2 variants, HIV, cancer, and diabetes.  The benefits of worldwide research can increase understanding of how other countries deliver quality health care. Visit the Global Center to learn about global health and trendsetters internationally.
