Information for

Waterloo Chronic Disease Prevention Initiative

The Propel Centre for Population Health Impact is leading a campus-wide initiative in Chronic Disease Prevention (CDP) on behalf of the Applied Health Sciences Faculty.

We are pleased to announce that the Chronic Disease Prevention Initiative (CDPI) has been renewed in 2016. The initiative will continue to emphasize population-based approaches to prevention and will encompass primary (reducing the likelihood of developing disease) and secondary (preventing or minimizing the progression of disease) prevention.  

The initiative catalyzes new interdisciplinary collaborations that focus on preventing chronic diseases and reducing their burden.
