WFPC Contributes to North Carolina State Health Improvement Plan

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper presents NC's first comprehensive state health improvement plan incorporating the principles of results-based accountability and the technology of Clear Impact Scorecard. The 2020 North Carolina State Health Improvement Plan operationalizes the priorities identified in the 2019 State Health Assessment and Healthy North Carolina 2030: A Path Toward Health.

The plan identifies best practices that can help communities act now to improve health. All of the practices promoted in the NC SHIP demonstrate active, local community support with a focus on health equity/health disparity. Many programs have North Carolina roots and most use multilevel interventions. All report successful results in the scope of their work with communities and policy makers.

Duke World Food Policy Center Director Kelly Brownell served on the Sugar Sweetened Beverage Consumption Working Group, and Director for Strategic Initiatives Jennifer Zuckerman served on the Limited Access to Healthy Foods Working Group.
