Welcome to NCAHPD

The NC Alliance for Health Professions Diversity (NCAHPD) is an organization of faculty, administrators and students of health schools, health organizations and related institutions committed to enhancing diversity.  The organization will serve as a clearing house for best practices in promoting health professions diversity in North Carolina.  The website will provide a directory of programs that work in increasing diversity and a roster of mentors that may be contacted by those interested in pursuing a health career and require assistance.  The organization holds biannual conferences where partners and invited speakers present strategies on diversifying the health professions workforce.  Our next conference will be held in August 2015.

We invite you to use this website as a resource for networking and collaborating with colleagues, to share experiences and to highlight programs that have proven success in increasing diversity.
