North Carolina Health News is a not for profit organization registered with the state of North Carolina. Content is developed solely by North Carolina Health News’ staff and contributors which is responsible for the development, editing and publishing of any and all content appearing on northcarolinahealthnews.org
We are a public-service, nonprofit news organization that focuses on in-depth reporting on all things health in North Carolina. We cover the issues that are crucial to your understanding of the health care system and current health care issues in the state, including research, consumer health, trends and news, with an emphasis on state-wide policies that end up affecting the lives of North Carolinians. We strive to provide context and background, we strive to be non-partisan, we strive to be as accurate and thorough as possible.
We don’t try to be everything to everybody. We don’t think we’re the only place you’re going to get news today. We know that in today’s world you’ve got plenty of places to turn for coverage, and there are other publications in North Carolina doing work that we don’t need to chase after or replicate. Our stories are original, not rehash from other publications around the state. Often we are the only outlet covering a story, be it an appropriations meeting or a program that’s making North Carolinians more healthy.
Getting approval from the IRS for 501(c)3 status is a long process, and until then we have a fiscal sponsor, another organization wtih a similar mission, that can accept tax-deductible donations in our behalf.That organization is the Raleigh Public Record, an online news organization dedicated to covering Raleigh.
