The Colorado Public Health Practice-Based Research Network (COPHPBRN) is a collaborative effort of several public health organizations including the Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center, The Public Health Alliance of Colorado, Colorado Association of Local Public Health Officials, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and public health researchers and professionals across Colorado. Julie Marshall, Ph.D. and Lisa VanRaemdonck, MPH, MSW, are Co-Directors and Sarah Lampe, MPH, is the Project Coordinator.
The Colorado Public Health Practice Based Research Network is one of the first 12 networks of its type developed across the country. Successful Practice Based Research Networks (PBRNs) identify relevant questions and link them with rigorous research methods applied within actual practice settings. The result of this collaboration is scientific information that is relevant to practice, externally valid, and readily adopted into practice.
