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.
Obesity Reduction in Halifax and Beaufort Counties
Like many parts of the state, rural Healthy Places NC communities are working to address high obesity rates and lack of access to active living resources. To assist stakeholders in Halifax and Beaufort counties, the Trust will support efforts that could include increasing recreational opportunities in underserved areas, conducting an equitable recreation master planning process, or promoting countywide recreation coordination.
