Health Improvement in North Carolina
Fostering a Healthy North Carolina
We invest in solutions that improve the quality of health for residents of North Carolina.
Special Initiative: Healthy Places NC
We invest in rural health solutions.
People living in urban North Carolina have longer life expectancies than people living in rural parts of the state. That’s why we’re investing up to half of our Health Improvement resources over 10 years in improving health and the overall quality of life in rural North Carolina.
Decreasing Health Disparities: Consumer Education and Feedback
The shift to Medicaid managed care and new value-based care arrangements in the state could improve health outcomes for financially vulnerable residents or widen already steep racial and geographic disparities. To ensure that low-income families are not harmed as payment models change, the Trust will support efforts to educate and protect consumers and promote patient feedback and information sharing among stakeholders.
