A Grassroots Practice-Based Research Network Addressing Priority Health Issues

West Virginia Alliance for Creative Health Solutions

The West Virginia Alliance for Creative Health Solutions, or WVACHS, is a grassroots practice-based research network (PBRN) dedicated to addressing priority health disparities and health issues within the state. This group acknowledges the long-standing gap between research findings and research translation and application in primary care. This challenge is addressed through true grass-roots mobilization of partners and ideas into tangible, pragmatic research design, implementation, application, and dissemination.
