Preparedness

This page showcases the four projects that CPHPR is currently conducting as part of the Emory Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center (PERRC) Translation and Dissemination Initiative. Each project was funded for 18 months by a Co-operative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Association for Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH). The projects are working to disseminate the results of prior research conducted through the Emory PERRC to relevant stakeholders.  See more information about Emory PERRC research products.
