The Academy for Population Health Innovation (APHI) was established in 2016 as a
unique affiliation between Mecklenburg County Public Health and The
University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The partnership acts as a mechanism for
strengthening cooperation, coordination, and exchange of resources that enhance both
organizations’ mission to improve population health. APHI members, including
faculty, students, health department employees, and community partners,
collaborate to identify health concerns and improve public health outcomes.
