Georgia State: Finding Health, Finding Home – Georgia State’s Prevention Research Center

In the latest episode of Georgia State University’s Research Podcast, Dr. Mary Helen O’Connor, faculty on Georgia State’s new Prevention Research Center (PRC) team and affiliate faculty in the Georgia State University School of Public Health, discusses how the center is working on issues affecting health and health disparities of refugees and migrants.  Headquartered on the Perimeter College campus in Clarkston, Georgia, a city known as the most diverse square mile in America, the PRC was established by a five-year, $3.75 million grant from the CDC.

Led by an interdisciplinary team, Georgia State researchers will use SafeCare to conduct the first systematic effort in the nation to develop culturally and linguistically relevant care and interventions for migrant and refugee children.  Georgia State is one of 25 institutions included in the 2019-24 PRC network.
