A 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 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.

The WVACHS is an interdisciplinary group of clinicians, administrators, and researchers actively providing health care to underserved populations in West Virginia.
