North Carolina

In partnership with The North Carolina American Indian Health Board (NCAIHB), the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity (MACHE) at Wake Forest University, and the Southeast Public Health Training Center at the North Carolina Public Health Institute, HCC launched new internship region in North Carolina focused on addressing the health disparity needs of the American Indians in North Carolina this year.  In its first year (2012), 12 students were placed, of which 6 were American Indian, in health departments, clinics and health-focused nonprofits around the state.

We are extremely grateful to our partners who made our summer in North Carolina extremely successful!

We partner with Wake Forest University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Gillings School of Global Public Health to offer workshops and provide advice and support to our interns.
