Your gifts are an investment in impact. You help us recruit and retain the strongest faculty, support innovations in research, practice and teaching, and train the next generation of public health leaders. Your support enables us to achieve the most important bottom line on our most important balance sheet — to find solutions to threats and problems across North Carolina and around the world. That’s the difference your gifts make – and the difference we can make together! Thank you!

— Barbara K. Rimer, DrPH
Dean and Alumni Distinguished Professor
