Award Winning

BrdsNBz is an award-winning service created in 2009 by the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign of North Carolina (APPCNC).  Offering free, anonymous, and real-time responses – BrdsNBz incorporates health education and personalized text messaging to meet public health needs on the front line.  Through an innovative public-private partnership with Austin-based OneSeventeen Media, Inc., BrdsNBz has evolved to BrdsNBz National and has become a model for other non-profit organizations; the service has become sustainable by ‘franchising’ technology across the United States.
