PREVENTION PARTNERS
June 27, 2011

From Sep2009 until Mar2010, I volunteered at NCPP as a loaned executive, and eventually joined their Board of Directors in July 2010. I conintue to be amazed at the impact this organization has in its mission to improve the health and lives of others through deploying preventive health practices in a variety of community settings. One of the things I admire most is their ability to form collaborations and create synergies to increase their effectiveness.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that NCPP has given me the opportunity to look at the world anew – reaffirm my self-confidence, and energize my thinking and approach to getting work done, and helped me create healthier eating habits in the process! Additionally, I have heard first-hand the personal impact stories of those individuals who have benfitted from NCPP's prevention programs.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to increase their visibility and their reach both within the state of NC and on a national level. Many organizations across the nation would benefit from the evidence-based wellness model they have created, called WorkHealthy America.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I changed the business development model of the NGO to successfully generate an unrestricted revenue stream by packaging and selling their proprietary preventive health tools and services.
