Make the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030!

The North Carolina Institute of Public Health joins many partners to celebrate National Public Health Week, and to share in the goal to make the U.S. the healthiest nation in one generation.

The need has never been greater. Currently, the U.S. spends MORE and gets LESS when it comes to health care and public health outcomes. Improving public health is the defining challenge of our generation – a challenge that we are uniquely positioned to help overcome.

In this issue of IMPACT, we are pleased to share an example of how the Institute’s technical assistance to a local health department is helping decrease STDs. As you read on, you will find out about our updated training opportunities for North Carolina’s public health professionals, and how our research is assisting colleagues cope with the world of big data in the public health arena.
