APTR-CDC Cooperative Agreement
Since 1984, APTR has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a Cooperative Agreement that has made possible activities that improve and increase collaborations between academic preventive medicine and public health.  Activities have included extramural funding and APTR (in-house) projects. 


In 2012, APTR was honored to sign a new five-year cooperative agreement with the CDC to carry-out:

  1. Centers of Innovation for Improving Health
  2. Collection of data on graduate public health programs and their graduates
  3. Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs)
  4. Fellowships
