North Carolina is pretty well covered when it comes to breadth of options and locations of the campus based public health programs. The state also ranks pretty well in its public health indicator ranks when compared against the other 50 states in the country.
With organizations such as the North Carolina Public Health Foundation fundraising in excess of $5 million since 2006 to support the North Carolina Department of Public Health programs, it is obvious that the state is serious about maintaining its quality ranks.
For someone looking to go into public health or to continue your education, it is a great sign to have independent organizations raise funds to assist with the public health for the community.
