Rigorous research and powerful programs optimize health and well-being.

KDHRC translates vetted scientific evidence and best practices to create powerful programs and design rigorous research that improve the health and well-being of youth, families, and communities.

To fulfill our mission, we explore complex social problems, construct and evaluate novel solutions, and disseminate validated programs that prompt change in our focus areas: drug abuse education and prevention, Latino health, vulnerable populations, and organizational studies.

KDHRC actively contributes to a future when all people can find, understand, and act on information to safeguard the health of themselves, their families, and their communities.
