The Wisconsin Public Health Research Network (WPHRN) is seeking new members.  The WPHRN is a group of researchers and practitioners interested in fostering collaboration on public health research in Wisconsin. WPHRN’s purpose is to answer questions of critical interest to public health practice and to disseminate discoveries that can be applied to improve practice and population health. To achieve its mission, WPHRN provides support for research projects and communicates results of research completed in collaboration with the network. Examples of recent WPHRN-supported projects include a qualitative analysis of shared service arrangements between Wisconsin’s local health departments, as well as an assessment of learning opportunities for students in public health agencies throughout the state.

Membership in WPHRN links researchers affiliated with academic institutions in Wisconsin to health department leaders and representatives of professional public health organizations. Benefits of membership include promotion and dissemination of relevant public health research, facilitated connections to WPHRN’s existing partners and members, and opportunities for research agenda setting within the network. Membership is free and encouraged for anyone interested in public health research within Wisconsin. 

WPHRN is affiliated with the Public Health Practice-Based Research Network’s National Coordinating Center, a program supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. WPHRN is funded by the UW-Institute for Clinical and Translational Research and additional research grants.  For more information or to join WPHRN, please visit http://www.wphrn.org/.
