    The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) is a non-profit Public Health organization committed to serve the chronic disease program directors of each state and U.S. jurisdiction. Founded in 1988, NACDD connects more than 6,000 chronic disease practitioners to advocate for preventive policies and programs, encourage knowledge sharing and develop partnerships for health promotion. Since its founding, NACDD has been a national leader in mobilizing efforts to reduce chronic diseases and their associated risk factors through state and community-based prevention strategies.

    NACDD activities help to support state efforts by:

    • Providing educational and training opportunities for our members
    • Developing legislative analyses, materials, policy statements and other resources
    • Educating policymakers about the importance of funding for state chronic disease prevention and control efforts
    • Providing technical assistance and mentoring to state public health practitioners
    • Developing partnerships and collaboration with public health and scientific communities, health care providers, federal agencies, universities and the private sector to pursue common goals
    • Advocating for the use of epidemiological approaches in chronic disease services planning and chronic disease data


    NACDD has numerous Councils addressing the unique prevention and control efforts of specific chronic diseases while advancing the professional development of chronic disease staff with common program interests. For more information see NACDD Initiatives.
