Shaping Policy for a Healthier State

The North Carolina Institute of Medicine, NCIOM, is an independent organization focused on improving the health and well-being of North Carolinians by providing analysis on the health and well-being of North Carolinians, identifying solutions to the health issues facing our state, building consensus toward evidence-based solutions, and informing health policy at the state and local level.

We bring together diverse stakeholders to develop solutions to the complex health problems in North Carolina.

The NCIOM’s task forces and other projects, including the NCMJ, have led to sustained improvements in the health and well-being of North Carolinians.
