Since its founding, NACDD has made impressive strides in mobilizing national efforts to reduce chronic diseases and the associated risk factors.
NACDD has more than 6,000 members nationwide and in U.S. territories. NACDD works to reduce the impact of chronic diseases on the American population by advocating for preventative policies and programs, encouraging knowledge sharing and developing partnerships for health promotion. NACDD has Councils and projects that address the needs of specific chronic diseases to advance prevention efforts and provide professional development for chronic disease staff.
We are inspired by the outstanding workforce in our state and territorial public health departments. We are humbled and honored to be a part of the national public health community striving to combat chronic disease – the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Without the talent, drive, skill and commitment of our public health professionals, NACDD would not be the premier organization it is today. Because of you, our members, this organization has come to be one of the nation’s leaders in chronic disease prevention and control.
