About Us

Since 1999, the North Carolina Institute for Public Health (NCIPH) has served as a bridge between academia and public health practice partners including state and local public health agencies, healthcare and community organizations.

Although formally established in 1999, some of NCIPH’s core programs, particularly continuing education, began in the 1930s as a core function of public health at UNC-Chapel Hill.

With a mission to “bridge knowledge and expertise at UNC Gillings, by facilitating collaborative solutions to population health challenges in North Carolina and beyond,” NCIPH serves as a resource for public health professionals across the state, region and country.

NCIPH staff come from a diverse range of fields, including public health, medical sciences, GIS technology, and more. In 2009, NCIPH received the Partners in Public Health Distinguished Group Award from the North Carolina Public Health Association.

The North Carolina Institute for Public Health’s work is interdisciplinary and revolves around three core departments:

Workforce Training and Education

Engagement and Collaboration

Community Assessment and Strategy
