For decades, Prevention Insights has provided formative and summative evaluation services to organizations to assess the impact of evidence-based prevention programs, practices, and policies. Our partnering organizations have come from a variety of settings including government agencies, schools, youth organizations, community coalitions, primary care clinics, and hospitals. We are well-versed in participatory evaluation, which entails serving in a consultancy role to other organizations.
Prevention Insights provides a unique synergy between academic research and community-driven evaluation and integration work. We benefit from all of the research resources available at Indiana University and are fully integrated into the robust research environment in the School of Public Health, while at the same time, we have learned from years of experience how to collaborate and convey research expertise to non-academic agencies as well.
We especially focus on customers’ needs in preparing our work, and do not believe that ‘one-size-fits-all’ procedures, analyses, or approaches are appropriate for most evaluation projects.
