Research Partnerships & Networks

Partnerships and networks provide NWCPHP with multi-disciplinary and community perspectives, so our research stays relevant and readily translatable to public health practice.

We create strong partnerships with public health and community-based organizations and belong to multiple networks in order to better serve the field. These relationships provide us with multi-disciplinary and community perspectives, so our research stays relevant and readily translatable to practice.

Northwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center (NWPERRC)

We house one of nine regional PERRCs established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to investigate structure, capabilities, and performance of public health systems for preparedness and emergency response activities.

Washington Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN)

As a partner in the Washington State Public Health Practice-Based Network, we work to expand public health services and systems research. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this partnership brings together the Washington Department of Health, the University of Washington’s Schools of Nursing and Public Health, the Washington State Association of Local Public Health Officials, and nine local public health jurisdictions. Participating researchers and practitioners collaborate on research projects that are innovative, creative, and cutting-edge.

Public Health Agency Partnerships

Collaboration with health practitioners and community organizations is a strong component of our research. We partner with many local and state public health departments, as well as tribal and community-based organizations. Learn more about ways to work with us on research projects.
