The Pediatric Practice Research Group (PPRG) is a well-established, regional practice-based research network founded in 1984 as a partnership of the Department of Pediatrics at Lurie Children’s and an enthusiastic group of over 50 pediatric practices.
PPRG is dedicated to understanding and promoting optimal child health and function through practice-based research in the primary care setting. Our network-based approach values excellence and innovation. Through our network of over 380 medical providers in the Chicago metropolitan area, PPRG determines best practices, delivers ongoing clinical education and evaluates outcomes relevant to our racially, ethnically and socioeconomically diverse populations.
The PPRG team has interests in a wide variety of topics. We have access to a diverse population of patients and we have addressed issues that are relevant to primary care. If you are interested in our research, we would like to hear from you.
