Center Initiatives

The Center has opened its doors to new opportunities and growth. Much of the center’s work has focused on:

  • substance abuse prevention (e.g.. opioid, alcohol)
  • the prevention of sexual assault
  • the prevention of child abuse and neglect
  • community organizing
  • heath disparities research
  • program evaluation
  • empowerment theory and measurement

In addition to their currently funded research projects totaling more than $4.3 million, two new research projects have recently been accepted and granted funding. These two projects, which will total $750,000 over five years, are studies of New Jersey’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Network: Effects of an Early Warning and Rapid Response System; and, NJAssessRX: An Interagency Sharing of the State’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
