Ann Forburger and Marti Macchi, two of NACDD's consultants visited the North Dakota Department of Health to provide technical assistance in relation to the 1305 Diabetes, Heart Disease, Stroke, Obesity and School Health grant.
"The information they provided was terrific. The North Dakota team gained more insight on how to proceed with the grant in two days than we have in the last 6 months. I attribute this to NACDD making connections with other basic funded states and sharing with us what can be accomplished with minimal staffing and funding yet at the same time positioning us for the potential of enhanced funding in the future. I would highly recommend this be offered to other basic states in the future.", says Karalee Harper - Director, Chronic Disease.
