Research

The Canyon Ranch Center for Prevention and Health Promotion conducts high quality prevention research aimed at improving health outcomes and reducing disease risk. The primary focus of our research efforts is enhancing health through diet/nutrition and physical activity interventions. Additionally, we have a keen interest in implementing and evaluating sustainable and effective community-based strategies for addressing health disparities and priorities in the community.

CRCPHP investigators bring a broad range of expertise to health promotion research including, but not limited to, diet and physical activity interventions for obesity, cancer prevention and survivorsip, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Additionally, CRCPHP engages in health literacy initiatives, community-based interventions, wellness/health registry, behavioral coaching, and program evaluation.

Under the direction of Cyndi Thomson, PhD, Director and Professor, CRCPHP offers faculty researchers opportunities to collaborate and identify support services.
