Dear Alumni and Friends,
Lee McLean, Associate Dean and Chair
The dedicated faculty and staff of the Department of Allied Health Sciences depend on private financial support to advance our mission to improve the quality and accessibility of health care for the people of North Carolina and the world through exemplary teaching, innovative research, and patient-centered clinical practice.
At the heart of the Department’s success in producing the nation’s leading allied health professionals for over 42 years is a set of key program values that guide faculty, students, and alumni:
- Exemplary Teaching: To produce excellent health care practitioners and researchers who are prepared to provide leadership to their disciplines and their future work settings.
- Innovative Research: To conduct research and generate new knowledge that will inform future practice and policy in allied health disciplines.
- Patient-Centered Clinical Practice: To advance the art and science of clinical practice with a focus on patient outcomes and quality of life.
Your financial support will help meet the increasing needs of our faculty, students, and programs that are not fully state supported. I encourage you to join me in making a gift to the Department of Allied Health Sciences. We greatly appreciate your ongoing support.
