PHR-youth is at the core of the UMCG strategy on regional networks and prevention. It connects in its research environment, behaviour and body. And it connects qualitative and quantitative research to realise innovations that add maximally to the health of children and youth and their fruitful further life course. Make every contact count and connect.
Building the capacities of professionals
Our society needs an excellent and sustainable public health workforce. PHR adds to this in collaboration with public health professionals. This regards e.g. research on vaccination willingness of parents, effective communication with low health literate people, and the training of professionals regarding health advocacy. This adds evidence but even more increases the competences of public health professionals to do research themselves.
