Our Structure

We are a coalition of individuals and organizations from across North Carolina who want to advance equitable policies that reduce health disparities, prevent chronic disease, and promote health.

Our goal is to make space for all those who are directly impacted by health disparities and individuals and organizations who support our mission and vision. To sign up to receive updates, resources, meeting announcements, and more, click here.

Partner Meetings

NCAH partner meetings are held bi-monthly on the second Tuesday of the month and are open to anyone who believes in NCAH’s mission. Each partner meeting will include discussions, partner sharing, and a mini-training session or presentation on a specific topic. They are a great way to get to know people from across the state who are working on similar issues, make connections, and learn from each other. Currently, all partner meetings are held via Zoom and separate registration is required for each meeting.

Coalition Meetings

NCAH holds coalition meetings for those interested in working on some of our main policy priorities for that year. Coalition meetings are times for networking, sharing, and education around policy priorities. Coalition meetings are also where we develop proposed policy priorities for the following year. In 2022, we will hold coalition meetings on the second Monday of each month. All coalition meetings will be held via Zoom.

During the legislative session, we will also hold weekly strategy calls to provide legislative updates and discuss advocacy strategies for active campaigns. These calls are timely and focused on immediate action for active campaigns. When you register for coalition meetings, you will also be added to our call list for weekly strategy calls during session.
