Local Coalitions: Our Partners

Local coalitions are the lifeblood of the NCHLC. The Council can assist you with developing a health literacy forum in your community and will gladly connect you with others in the state who are actively working to make health literacy a community priority. At present, Guilford County has the only established local coalition. Three additional coalitions are expected to be up and running by Spring 2009. Stay tuned for details about these new coalitions and their activities.
