We are a community of engaged faculty, staff members and students who work with communities and across disciplines — in North Carolina and around the world — to solve some of our most challenging health problems. Students experience levels of support typically available only at a small school but enjoy all the advantages of a large, world-class university.
At the UNC Gillings School, we know we can make a world of difference, and we strive everyday to do just that.
