We invite you to view our completed Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Annual Report which provides documented snapshots of the accomplishments in the continuum of health education in our six core areas that were planned, developed and implemented in collaboration with our more than 300 partners in our 17-county region as well as statewide.
Among the many impacts of COVID-19 on North Carolina is a marked decrease in rates of well-child visits and childhood vaccinations. The problem is particularly acute in minority populations, but since the advent of COVID-19, parents across the board have been less likely to be up-to-date on these important medical services. Well-child care includes medical and developmental screening tests and immunizations are critical to avoiding problems such as a resurgence in measles and other communicable diseases.
To help increase well-child visits and immunization rates, Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) and NC AHEC, under the direction of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS), has launched the Keeping Kids Well program. CCNC and NC AHEC will work with practices experiencing a greater number of care gaps to improve these measures and also will work to raise awareness of the problem among North Carolina’s parents.
In the new world of Zoom, WebEx, Teams, it is more important than ever to ensure you present yourself with highest level of professionalism and attentiveness. Online meetings and online learning are likely here to stay for a while. Many companies have shifted to fully remote workforce, colleges are doing all virtual classes, and for Northwest AHEC all live in person learning has shifted to online webinars.
