Make a Gift

Congrats to UNC Anesthesiology’s June 2023 Star Heels!


STAFF: Destany Jackson (nominated by Starr Holley): “Thank you for your help with the resident symposium booklet.”

TECH: Andrew Tolksdorf (nominated by Emily Teeter): “Andrew is always super responsive and proactive about checking on us.  Thanks for looking out for the team!”

CRNA: Laura Madison (nominated by Damon Wallace): “Laura is a fantastic team player.  She is always willing to lend a helping hand be it in the main ORs, with challenging cases on OB/L&D, the mundane tasks of stocking the epidural carts, or with any tech/EPIC issues that might arise in the department.  She is constantly offering breaks and assistance when she gets finished with her own work.  We would certainly have a tough time functioning without her in any of these realms!”

RESIDENT: Maya Mendelaw (nominated by Greg Balfanz & Bryson Shelton)
“One of the most proactive swing residents I’ve worked with.”
“Maya lent a helping hand and gave me advice overnight on a 28-hour surgery call shift. Very helpful!”

FACULTY: Ben Cobb (nominated by Greg Balfanz & Emily Teeter)
“[Ben] covered part of my swing shift so I could give a lecture that he also rescheduled when I messed it up.”
“[Ben offered] to drive me home when I had been up all night on call.  Thanks, Ben!”
