I got to know NCPP by the time I was looking for my practicum for my MPH. I searched the company website and I felt that it was the place I wanted to work with. I also consulted my peers at school and heard wonderful comments about the organization. The company has different projects and programs focused on prevention and they also affect several ecological levels which strengthens the effect of their work. Considering that NC still has a long way to go to reach an ideal level of public health, having organizations like NCPP dedicated to build coalitions and make systems change to promote public health is essential for our community. Also NCPP is very honest and transparent worganization and it applies all the principles of health promotion that they believe and recommend to others. I think NCPP sets a great example of how a non-profit can make a real world difference.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I helped NCPP on writing a surveillance document of NC health indicators and I could document all the changes NCPP helped to happen in the tobacco prevention, nutrition and physical activity indicators for the state.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
I could help other organizations to promote worsite wellness at the same time I experienced that happening in my everyday routine, working with a very energetic group, practicing group physical activities and eating free fresh fruits every day at work.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & Collaborated in different public health projects, especially worksite wellness programs with hundreds of businesses in NC.
