Within the NC Division of Public Health we have worked with multiple clients, including:
Chronic Disease Section: We led the planning and writing of the NC Coordinated Chronic Disease, Injury, and Health Promotion State Plan which was submitted to the CDC in 2013.
Community and Clinical Connections for Prevention and Health Branch (CCCPH): For over 20 years we have provided consultant support to the CCCPH Branch (previously known as the Physical Activity and Nutrition Branch) for multiple health promotion initiatives including worksite health promotion evaluation; writing one of the earliest state plans to increase physical activity using systems change; implementation and evaluation assistance for the CPPW and CTG grants; diabetes evidence base review; and capacity building for their staff and partners (including KBR Catalyst staff, HEAL Liaisons, CTG regional coordinators, Active Routes to School regional coordinators).
Children and Youth Branch: We provided training and technical assistance to NC regional staff and partners of the Innovative Approaches program as they applied system-change strategies to benefit children and youth with special health care needs.

John Rex Endowment: We have helped this foundation enhance the injury and violence prevention capacity of government and non-profit practitioners in Wake County, NC through training events and technical assistance.
Indian Health Service: Over a 15-year period, we provided guidance and support to the national, area, and tribal staff as they assessed and redeveloped their injury prevention program. The project included redesigning their injury prevention training curriculum.
