Review for Prevention Partners, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have done considerable work with North Carolina Prevention Partners (NCPP) in my previous capacity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Office on Smoking and Health staff person.
NCPP has provided both state and national leadership in physical activity, tobacco control and work with hospitals. Few other states have been able to get 100% of hospitals to implement tobacco free campuses, an improtant health policy. This is a significant accomplishment in one of the major tobacco producing states in the US. Meg Molloy has provided outstanding leadership for the organization and has attracted high level competent staff.
The organization's accomplishments over the course of their years of operation has been significant. I would sincerely recommend a continued high rating for this extremely effective organization.

NCPP has frequently used consultation to improve and expand their activities. They are recognized nationally for hospital systems change initiatives in tobacco dependence treatment. NCPP has worked with hospitals to imporve food and nutrition services available to employees and patients, sponsored competitions between hospital chefs and encouraged hospitals to improve employee physical activity. Work with the State Medicaid Program was done to improve tobacco dependence treatment.

I have seen little about this organization that I would suggest changing. There is strong leadership, effective staffing that works in a supportive atmosphere, which has accomplished a great deal compared to other organizaitons of this type. I would hope the organization is able to obtain additional funding to increase staffing and expand similar initiatives to additional organizations around the state.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I provided ongoing consultation to this organization in the areas of telephone quitlines for tobacco dependence treatment and support for their tobacco free hospital campus initiatives.
