  • Description:
    An innovative Prevention Research Centers (PRC) program, the Healthy Aging Research Network (HAN) is a group of nine PRCs focused on improving the health of older Americans by conducting quality prevention research, translation, and dissemination of findings. The HAN is unique in that it combines diverse perspectives of network members, many of whom are luminaries in the field of aging studies, and establishes new national linkages to expand prevention research for older adults and their communities. This descriptive case study report was conducted to identify the meaningful characteristics of the intra-network processes involved in the construction and operation of the HAN. Essentially, the case study will explain how the HAN functions and why the HAN is a value-added enterprise for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) PRC program and Healthy Aging program. Results of this case study also suggest generalities that may be instructive for other thematic research networks in the PRC program and beyond.
