The Zollicoffer Lectureship was established in 1981 by members of the UNC chapter of the Student National Medical Association with the support of the Dean of the School of Medicine. It was named in honor of Lawrence Zollicoffer, M.D. (1930-1976), the fourth African American graduate of the UNC School of Medicine and founder of the Garwyn Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The Baltimore community recognized Dr. Zollicoffer as a supporter and activist in the struggle for civil and human rights. Throughout his life, he exemplified qualities which students admire and hope to emulate as future physicians. The Zollicoffer Silent Auction Fundraiser was set up as a way for the SNMA to give back to the community. Each year local businesses, alumni, and friends donate goods and services to be sold at auction. All proceeds from the auction goes to support a non-profit or community program. Your contributions have already made an indelible mark on the lives of those we contact through our many programs and activities.
You can make a donation via Venmo to @UNC_SNMA or by check. Please make all check payable to UNC/SNMA. If you would like to donate goods or services please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
