About National Physicians Center

The National Physicians Center (NPC) was founded in 2000 for the purpose of involving physicians in policy formation in issues of health and child welfare at the national and international levels. Participating physicians have volunteered their time and expertise to promote medically and scientifically valid practices in public health and child welfare and to produce educational resources for families and health educators.

NPC involvement has included projects in the U.S., China and Africa.  In the past few years, the NPC has become more project-oriented, producing a video newsletter for parents and health educators, and providing advice and educational resources for health education work in Africa.
