Past Events

Orientation for New Clinical Research Personnel from Nov 07, 2012 12:00 AM to Dec 05, 2012 12:00 AM Brinkhous-Bullitt, Room 219,
This four part orientation is strongly recommended for all clinical research personnel who are new to UNC or new to research. The objectives are to introduce research personnel to the UNC offices involved in clinical trials, discuss the federal and local regulations governing conduct of research, and provide an overview of best practices utilized in the implementation of clinical research. Pre-requisites for attending this training are completion of the CITI Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and CITI Ethics online courses available at: www.citiprogram.org/Default.asp

World AIDS Day Event: Lecture and Panel Discussion with James Bunn, co-creator of World AIDS Day Nov 28, 2012 from 05:00 PM to 06:30 PM 104 Howell Hall,
James W. Bunn is the president of Global Health Communications. He’s an accomplished broadcast journalist and producer/writer/director whose work has been recognized with the industry’s highest honors – The Peabody Award, six Emmy Awards, and the Cable Ace Award. In the early 1980’s, as a broadcast journalist, he began reporting on a little-known story at the time – the AIDS epidemic. In addition to covering the story, he initiated “AIDS Lifeline”, a public awareness and health education campaign that was syndicated to television stations nationwide and honored with a Peabody Award, a local Emmy, and the first National Emmy ever awarded a local station. At a White House ceremony in 1987 the “AIDS Lifeline” project was honored with a Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives, presented by President Ronald Reagan. Mr. Bunn was then asked by the U.S. government to take a two-year leave-of-absence living abroad to work for the United Nations. Stationed in Geneva with the World Health Organization, Mr. Bunn was the first public information officer for what is now known as UNAIDS. There he co- created, designed, and implemented the inaugural World AIDS Day observance, the longest-running disease awareness and prevention initiative of its kind in the history of public health.
2012 Adolescent Health Summit Nov 27, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 03:00 PM McKimmon Conference Center, NC State University (1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh, NC 27606),
The overall goal of The North Carolina Metamorphosis Project (NCMP), funded by The Duke Endowment, is to improve adolescent health, health care, life-long trajectories of health, and transitions to adulthood in North Carolina. NCMP does this by increasing awareness of the unmet health needs of North Carolinians between 10 and 20 years of age, and by producing and encouraging implementation of evidence-based recommendations to improve services, programs, and policies addressing high-priority health needs of this age group during the second decade of the 21st century.
