Through a five-year grant from Be Active North Carolina and its founding sponsor, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, the Be Active North Carolina/ Appalachian Partnership is assessing the needs and challenges that face Western North Carolina related to physical activity.

Collaborating with community partners, the program provides resources and programming for schools, worksites, childcare centers, and community organizations in western North Carolina, as well as offering research and student learning opportunities for Appalachian faculty and students.
