The NACDD Experience


Who We Are

The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors is a non-profit organization located in Atlanta, Georgia. For 28 years, NACDD has helped states directly improve America's health. We are over 6,000 chronic disease professionals working in every state health department across eery state and U.S. Territory. Our members also include those working with us in academia, non-profits, government agencies and private industry. NACDD's role continues to be that of standing in the gap, linking resources with its member-experts and together creating a safer, healthier and more equitable America.


NACDD Culture

At NACDD, we recognize and support the culture of respect and healthy work environment; we place importance on a healthy work-life balance through wellness plan, flexible work schedule and telecommuting. We continuously seek to improve our workplace, we promote diversity and we empower our employees to innovate, contribute and collaborate.

We believe in:

  • Integrity: demonstrated by honesty, openness and transparency, in discussions, decisions and actions

  • Professionalism: demonstrated by a bold outcome-orientation informed by careful consideration of science, evidence, and promising practice

  • Inclusivity: demonstrated by non-discriminatory, representative and culturally competent behavior that acknowledges and values differences in our membership and the populations they serve

  • Leadership: demonstrated by an earned reputation for active engagement, collaborative ability, and effectiveness as the member driven collective voice of the states, territories, tribes and jurisdictions we serve.

We encourage our employees to strive to live well balanced and fulfilling lives. We offer to all of our employees a comprehensive benefits package that allows them to work hard and play hard! To ensure that our benefits package remains competitive, NACDD regularly compares our benefits package against selected company in the Atlanta area. We regularly evaluate and, as needed, update it to reflect current trends.
