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, we are canceling, modifying or postponing all on-site courses/training sessions. Participants who have already registered for courses will receive email messages regarding plans for their specific courses.
We will continue to monitor and make decisions based on current information.
NCIPH works with our partners to:
- Conduct training and education for the public health workforce
- Collaborate on technical assistance, research and evaluation projects
- Translate research to practice
- Publish and present scholarly practice-based work
- Link students to research projects and practica
