Welcome to the NC Center for Health & Wellness

The NC Center for Health & Wellness (NCCHW) works to impact policy, build capacity, and ignite community initiatives by working through a web of cross-sector relationships organized around building healthier places throughout the state.

The two initiatives at the core of our organization include NCCHW’s Culture of Results (COR) empowerment evaluation training and technical assistance program and Healthy Aging NC (HANC), which provides statewide training, data reporting, management, and technical assistance for evidence-based health programs. Our work collectively improves health outcomes for historically marginalized populations statewide and builds systems to support the inclusivity and decision-making abilities of these underserved populations in the long term.

NCCHW also has a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion workgroup that operationalizes NCCHW’s anti-racist commitments into long-term action. Learn more about our commitment to DEI
