The North Carolina Metamorphosis Project


The overall goal of The North Carolina Metamorphosis Project, funded by The Duke Endowment, is to improve adolescent health, health care, life-long trajectories of health, and transitions to adulthood in North Carolina. We plan to do this by increasing awareness of the unmet health needs of North Carolinians between 10 and 20 years of age, and by producing and encouraging implementation of evidence-based recommendations to improve services, programs, and policies addressing high-priority health needs of this age group during the second decade of the 21st century. Our current strategy for achieving these objectives involves five key activities:

  1. 2009 Portrait of Adolescent Health in N.C.
  2. Parent Survey
  3. N.C. Adolescent Health Task Force and Report
  4. N.C. Adolescent Health Summit
  5. Dissemination and Implementation Support
