Georgia Prevention Center17

Formerly known as the Georgia Prevention Institute, the Georgia Prevention Center (GP\C) was founded over three decades ago by two pioneers, a Pediatric Cardiologist (Dr. William B. Strong) and an educator (Dr. Maurice Levy) to fill a void in education and research in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention across the lifespan. It was first allocated space in 1985, when Drs' Strong, Levy and Frank Treiber (the first full-time faculty member and later Director) received the GPI's first grant from the institute's first National Institutes of Health grant to study the relationship of childhood diet and exercise to future heart disease. The breadth of the center's research has also grown to include the study of diabetes, kidney disease, and lung disease. More information about GPC can be found at l
