NC State Health Priorities

In 2016, NC TraCS and the CaSE program implements a multi-step priority-setting process to identify the leading health issues across North Carolina. Data were gathered from 99 counties and 86 hospitals across the state via County Health Assessments and Community Health Needs Assessments conducted at county public health departments and hospitals. The resulting report will be used for strategic planning by NC TraCS, and its collaborating investigators and community partners, to better address the health needs of North Carolinians.
