    Online Education, Training and Resources

    Research to Reality (R2R)

    Research to Reality  is an interactive community of practice developed by the National Cancer Institute.  Join more than 2300 cancer control researchers and practitioners to connect and collaborate; ask questions; discuss ideas and solutions; share useful resources and tools; and participate in cyber-seminars and other events.

    The Community Guide to Preventive Services

    The Community Guide is a website that houses the official collection of all Community Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force) findings and the systematic reviews on which they are based. It is a free resource to help you choose programs and policies to improve health and prevent disease in your community. Systematic reviews are used to answer these questions:

    • Which program and policy interventions have been proven effective?
    • Are there effective interventions that are right for my community?
    • What might effective interventions cost; what is the likely return on investment?
