Our Mission

The Society for Prevention Research is an organization dedicated to advancing scientific investigation on the etiology and prevention of social, physical and mental health and academic problems and on the translation of that information to promote health and well being.

The multi-disciplinary membership of SPR is international and includes scientists, practitioners, advocates, administrators, and policymakers who value the conduct and dissemination of prevention science worldwide.
