PRO Health - Prevention Research to Optimize Health

Rob Turrisi

Welcome to the department of Biobehavioral Health’s joint collaboration with the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center's (PRO) Health Lab. We specialize in peer, parent, and feedback interventions to help reduce risky drinking and health related behaviors in adolescents, college students, and adults. The research conducted in our lab is considered to be at the forefront of both the Alcohol and Skin Cancer fields, and our projects are funded by divisions of the National Institute of Health (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institute on Drug Abuse, and National Cancer Institute), as well as private sources such as the American Cancer Society. Many of our undergraduate and graduate students have received prestigious awards and have moved on to highly sought after positions or higher education institutions upon the completion of their training.
