Carolina Public Health Online Survey

    Your opinion matters

    Because of state budget cuts, our spring 2009 Carolina Public Health magazine is almost entirely online. The Web version allows new features, including LinkedIn discussions, YouTube videos and Flickr photo albums. These may appeal to some people while others may find that the online version does not have the convenience or visual appeal of print. As we plan future issues of Carolina Public Health, we need your feedback. If budget cutbacks continue, we want your help in deciding whether to continue the mostly online approach. Please let us know what you think, either by completing the survey below or contacting Ramona DuBose, director of communications, at (919) 966-7467 or Your opinion really matters to us!

    Letter from the Dean


    Given the tight budget situation, many universities now mail their magazine only to those who contribute at a certain level, or they charge a subscription fee. How do you feel about the magazine being mailed to donors only?

    Agree Disagree Don’t know

    If you are not a current donor to the School, would you be willing to contribute annually in order to receive the magazine?
