PTA Survey from UNC
 

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with funding from The North Carolina Parent Teachers Association (NCPTA),  is conducting research through a brief survey to determine how PTAs can better support schools’ and parents’ efforts to raise healthy children. It will only take 10 minutes so, if you are interested, please follow this link (https://qtrial2014az1.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_da0z6ieF9a1tytf)  to share your thoughts and opinions on child health and the roles of PTA’s and schools in supporting child health!  Thank you!


If you have questions about the research, please contact Linden Thayer, project manager, at 301-461-7838 or lmelder@email.unc.edu
