|At the state and local level, we support legislative priorities of the NC Alliance for Health (NCAH), a coalition of individuals and organizations advocating for tobacco and obesity prevention policies. As a founding member of NCAH, we recognize that evidence –based public policies are essential to prevention and health.
Jim Long Policy Fellow
We announced our first ever Jim Long Policy Fellowship this year, named for the late NC Insurance Commissioner and prevention advocate, Jim Long. This fellow will work on major policy projects and will facilitate the expansion of NCPP’s policy role and policy committee. Danielle Schramm was selected as NCPP’s 2012 Policy Fellow. She is a master’s student at UNC- Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health in Health Policy & Management from Atlanta, Ga.
