Partnership always has defined our work with communities, states, tribes, and territories. And, during our past 30 years, we also have expanded and diversified our partnerships among federal, state, and local governments as well as across industries spanning consultant services, insurance providers, community health networks, health systems, the media, and private corporations.
Since NACDD’s inception in 1988, our primary partner remains the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Our strategic alliance continues to strengthen our ability to implement change and educate the public about our crucial preventative work.
In 2016, NACDD partnered with CBS Television and award-winning journalist Joan Lunden to bring prediabetes awareness to the nation’s 13 largest media markets. We partnered with Kognito, a software gaming company, to create an animated conversation simulation tool that answers patients’ questions regarding triple negative breast cancer.
