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