Medical Directors' Section 


The Medical Directors Section of NCPHA consist of MD’s and DO’s who serve as physicians in either our State or Local Public Health Departments across North Carolina.  The Section’s purpose is to create both a virtual and real community among these providers in order to:

1) improve patient care;

2) provide social and emotional support that enhances the work experience of these critical employees;

3) creates an opportunity for policy input and advocacy, and strengthens the role of NCPHA as a strong advocate for the improved health of all people in NC.
