Northwest Preparedness & Emergency Response Research Center

NWCPHP houses the Northwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center in order to research how messages are communicated before, during, and after emergencies.

NWCPHP houses one of nine regional Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Centers (PERRC) established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The work done through the center looks at how to communicate messages before, during, and after emergencies to improve preparedness and response.
