    About Us

    The UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention addresses pressing health problems by collaborating with communities to conduct research, provide training, and translate research findings into policy and practice. The Center seeks to reduce health disparities through an emphasis on community-based participatory research to ensure that the community is involved in every stage of research. The CDC selected HPDP to be one of its first three Prevention Research Centers in 1985. Now comprised of 25 academic institutions, the PRC program is an interdependent network of community, academic, and public health partners that conduct prevention research and promote practices proven to promote good health.

    Our vision is to bring public health research findings to the daily lives of individuals and communities with a special focus on North Carolina and populations vulnerable to disease.

    Our mission is accomplished by working with partners to:

    -enhance the ability of public health practitioners, as well as individuals, groups and communities to promote health and prevent disease,

    -conduct, evaluate, and disseminate innovative, community-based research, and develop education and training programs to translate research into public health practice.

    Recently, we at Go NAPSACC have been inspired by the creativity, flexibility, and resilience of the child care community. We have compiled resources to assist in your efforts in your continued support of children, families, and staff: https://gonapsacc.org/resources/news-updates/g-n-s

    Finally, we’re so grateful to all of the amazing volunteers, restaurants, and others who are donating their time and resources and finding new ways to help feed hungry kids while schools are closed. Thank you! #ThankAHungerHero

    Food banks and pantries are also providing critical resources across the state. Thank you SO MUCH for all of the incredible work you do to help ensure kids and their families get they need. #ThankAHungerHero @feedcarolinas

    Let’s also say a huge thank you to the @ncschoolmeals team at @ncpublicschools for the amazing work they do to help meal sponsors navigate the process for getting kids critical meals while schools are closed. THANK YOU! #ThankAHungerHero #NCSchoolHeroes

    Schools are closed because of #COVID19, but that isn’t stopping nutrition professionals, school staff, and community partners from making sure kids have the meals they need. Thank you to everyone still working to ensure no kid goes hungry! #ThankAHungerHero #NCSchoolHeroes
