Our Mission and Vision


Capitalizing on the knowledge, energy, and collective wisdom of our strategic partners, NACDD has provided support and leadership to chronic disease professionals throughout every state and U.S. territory since 1988.

With a strong alliance with the CDC, NACDD gains access to its valuable resources, including conferences, webinars, and roundtables to discuss the latest trends and movements shaping the public health landscape. Our symbiotic relationships allow for ample exchange of ideas and focused direction, leading to new, innovative actions in disease prevention. With our common goal, it is a privilege to serve each day alongside the best leaders and organizers in chronic disease prevention.

Our Mission

NACDD improves the health of the public by strengthening state-based leadership and expertise for chronic disease prevention and control in states and at the national level.

Our Vision

Lead and influence the ways that chronic disease prevention and health promotion shapes the future health landscape.

“NACDD is not just a professional association—we are an organization created by Chronic Disease Directors for Chronic Disease Directors and their staff, and the future of NACDD will be their vision and their creation.”
