NMC Launches Website for APPCNC
New Media Campaigns is pleased to announce the launch of the website for the local NC non-profit, APPCNC. APPCNC dedicates themselves to preventing adolescent pregnancy by focusing on education, healthcare, family and community support—the systems they believe have the largest impact. Founded in the mid-1980s, APPCNC has advocated for their cause with a variety of programs including advocacy days and awareness events.
According to APPCNC, ensuring our youth is healthy, responsible, and informed must be a team effort. Since the organization wanted to address concerns and questions faced by a variety of people dealing with this issue, the NMC team designed the Resources section with information organized by the different audiences: Young People, Young Parents, Medical Professionals, Schools, and Parents. Each section offers advice, useful links, and information on relevant programs and events.
This website, developed on NMC's HiFi Content Management System, also offers personalized information with the county map and local clinic finder. NMC custom built an interactive map, allowing people to find information specific to their county including:
- Pregnancy statistics
- STD data by county
- Local health policies
- Helpful local organizations
Visitors can use the local clinic finder to search for clinics in the area by providing their zip code. This feature pulls data from the bedsider.org API.
In January, this ambitious organization announced their goal to reduce teen pregnancy by 30% by 2020. New Media Campaigns is confident that this dynamic site will help bring APPCNC closer to this admirable goal.
