We’ve had a big year! This year, NCAH:
- Added Marianne Hedrick Weant to our staff as our Grassroots Coordinator. Marianne has called North Carolina home since 2008 and has an MSPH in community health and an MA in anthropology. She started her work in this area at Be Active NC, and spent almost 9 years at North Carolina PTA where she worked extensively on health and education issues impacting children, families, and schools.
- Increased membership by 50% and added new members to each of our work groups: Tobacco Use Prevention, Healthy Food Access, and Physical Education.
But we’re not done yet—check back next week to see our proposed policy priorities for 2019!
