RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- AstraZeneca L.P. today expanded its commitment to building healthy lifestyles in North Carolina by making a $1.5 million charitable donation to N.C. Prevention Partners. The donation, secured by the North Carolina State Health Plan, will fund for three years a comprehensive worksite wellness program available to employees at the N.C.
