SENCRHC logoCollectively Impacting the Well-being and Health of Individuals and Communities in the Region

The College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW), in partnership with regional public health leadership and staff, has established the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Health Collaborative (SENCRHC) to improve individual and population/ community health in Southeastern North Carolina through regional programs and interventions. Our partners are the South East Area Health Education Center (SEAHEC) and the directors and staff of the county health departments in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Onslow, Pender, Robeson, and Sampson counties.

It is the vision of the SENCRHC for residents in Southeastern NC to be actively engaged in healthy lifestyles. The Center for Health communities is providing critical backbone functions that provide the guidance, coordination and communication required to maintain an effective collaborative. These functions include facilitation of the regional diabetes network and implementation of a region-wide health intervention through the Kids in Parks program.
