About Our Research Center
The Center for Primary Care, Prevention, and Population Health Research (C3PR) within Baylor College of Medicine and the Department of Family and Community Medicine conducts high-quality research and service programs that improve the health of residents throughout Greater Houston, Texas, and surrounding areas.
The center’s topic areas cover several branches of population health research, developing from the interests of our faculty members and the pressing questions in medicine today. Together we leverage a variety of resources, including access to large data sets, a diversity of interprofessional knowledge bases, access to community service providers and populations, and mentorship and networking opportunities. We aim to attract faculty and fellows with aligning interests to build the knowledge base through interprofessional collaborations.
We focus on four overarching topics and respective sub-topics:
- Latino Health
- Social Determinants of Health
- Access and Quality of Care
- Improving Ambulatory Antibiotic Prescribing
- Reducing Use of Antibiotics Without a Prescription
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Healthcare-Associated Infections
Integrated Behavioral & Physical Health
- Complex Chronic Disease
- Mental Health & Wellness
