Founded in 2000, the National Physicians Center has impacted health education throughout the United States, as well as in China and Africa. Our work has included training China-based medical experts and health educators; initiating and supporting adolescent health projects in Africa, and advising the White House on an information website on adolescent health for parents that was viewed around the world.
The NPC is currently focused on developing video newsletters for parents and health educators on a variety of issues (link here), and supporting an adolescent health education project in Malawi, Africa.
Our physician-developed health education resources include a best-selling 85-page booklet (link here) available for download in English and Spanish as well as an interactive CD-ROM (link here) in English and Chinese.
The National Physicians Center currently provides educational resources to 10 African countries, including Kenya, Nigeria, Cameroon, Tanzania, South Africa and the Ivory Coast. Groups using these resources include; youth-serving organizations; schools; health education centers; churches; libraries and medical centers. In addition, NPC physicians provide ongoing advice and referrals to these groups on issues related to family health and child welfare.
