MAHA conducts educational trainings across the state to inform health professionals about the health impacts of air pollution and climate change. The trainings also discuss how health professionals can make a larger impact in their community through advocacy. MAHA conducts ad hoc trainings (e.g. grand rounds, in-services, student classes, etc) as well as regular monthly trainings with Duke Health and Atrium Health’s Pediatric residents. If you are interested in bringing this training to your community, please email


Nurses, physicians and pharmacists are 3 of the top 5 most trusted professionals. This gives health professionals a strong and credible voice to help improve the health of their community. MAHA does this by leading and participating in advocacy activities across North Carolina. From submitting public comments to attending public hearings to writing letters to the editor to speaking at press conferences to talking with policy makers to joining boards and commissions, we ensure the health voice is heard.
