The North Carolina Perinatal Association was formed in 1985 as a non-profit organization.
The areas of work for the association are advocacy and education. We are working to develop an effective advocacy effort with the legislature as well as to build coalitions with other organizations in order to engage in cooperative efforts geared towards improving perinatal health.
Educational efforts focus on informing members, policy makers, and the public about issues related to healthy mothers and babies. Our interdisciplinary membership and leadership are vital for the NCPA to accomplish these goals.
