Academic/Practice-Based Research (NC PH-PBRN)

NCPHA’s Academic/Practice-Based Research Section is North Carolina’s Public Health Practice-based Research Network. (NC PH-PBRN). The NC PH-PBRN is one of the original PH-PBRNs funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The network is intended to stimulate and support practice-based research that is driven by questions developed by local public health practitioners in North Carolina.  The NC PH-PBRN also provides a forum through which researchers and practitioners statewide can interact and work together to improve population health.

This section will appeal to public health practitioners and applied researchers interested in creating the evidence base to improve public health systems and services.
