Faculty mentorship in research, research leadership, service and teaching is a crucial component of our mission. We are committed to providing mentorship and guidance to junior faculty as well as to more senior faculty who have decided to expand their activities to include new areas of investigation, teaching and service. Mentorship areas include:

  • Community-engaged and practice-based research
  • Building multidisciplinary research teams
  • Child and adolescent health
  • Tobacco use
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Metabolic diseases
  • Behavioral prevention interventions
  • Participatory and systems evaluation¬†
  • Knowledge translation and dissemination

Mentorship may also include best practices for service opportunities to the university, local community, state and nation as well as teaching effectiveness and delivery. The WVPRC also connects researchers to community, public health and practice partners through our Community Partnership Board and through other venues to facilitate the conduct of community-engaged research and research translation.
