My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Prevention Partners, Chapel Hill, NC, USA
I developed a working relationship with NCPP in 2008 when I first began working for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation Healthy Schools Program as the NC relationship manager. Since NCPP has a similar school health program and also works with K-12 NC schools we decided to connect to discuss strategic ways to offer our programs in separate school districts to ensure that similar efforts were not being duplicated. This working relationship has allowed both of our organizations to offer assistance to NC schools to create healthier school environments by offering best practices tool & resources without duplicating efforts within the same schools or districts.
Our working relationship has also allowed us to collaborate with other school and community health organizations to build relationships with roundtable discussions to assist with strategically planning on how to offer services and resources to create healthier North Carolinians. With these effective collaborations NCPP was able to create a school health connection website that can assist schools and community health professional to identify where school health programs are being offered. I look forward to continuous efforts to reduce the obesity epidemic and create a healthier state.
