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 supports local public health agencies, health care and community organizations across the state, region and country.
Statement on COVID-19
In our continued efforts to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, the NCIPH team will all be working remotely to support public health in North Carolina. We would love to hear from you, and our full staff is still working and available during business hours. The best way to contact us during this time of physical distancing is by email rather than phone calls or physical mail.
For more information about COVID-19 and the Gillings School of Global Public Health’s response, please visit their coronavirus information portal.
In light of COVID-19 and the fact that public health agencies are on the front lines of mitigation and response within their communities, many of NCIPH’s training programs and other activities have been modified. Please check individual course pages or reach out to NCIPH staff if you have questions about the status of specific programs.
