EDC identifies opportunities to promote individual, family, and community health and address disparities. We break down barriers to reach the medically underserved and improve the delivery of coordinated, evidence-based prevention and treatment services. Our programs reach the young and the elderly—and their caregivers—in diverse settings, including clinics, hospitals, schools, Head Start programs and child care centers, community programs, senior centers, and assisted living.
We develop community-level health communications campaigns as well as face-to-face and online training programs for physicians, nurses, mental health counselors, and allied health providers. We design digital health tools for reaching busy professionals and for providing consumers with self-management support.
