Ways to Make a Gift

The UNC Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology is committed to providing high quality, compassionate healthcare, advancing our understanding of digestive diseases and training future clinicians and researchers.Your donation to the division will support our ongoing research to develop new treatments and cures for those who suffer from gastrointestinal and liver diseases and to train the next generation of gastroenterologists and hepatologists at the bench and the bedside.

The Gastroenterology and Hepatology Excellence Fund allows the division chief, Nicholas J. Shaheen MD, MPH, to make timely decisions about where resources are needed the most.

The Fellows Fund supports our fellowship program, which prepares trainees for top academic and clinical positions by providing a strong foundation in patient care, research and teaching. The Fellows Fund helps us provide a comprehensive Fellowship Program, allowing Fellows to pursue research and leadership opportunities at national conferences and seminars; supports visiting lecturers from across the country and aids in funding educational materials and subscriptions.

The Mary Kay and Eugene Bozymski and Linda and William Heizer Distinguished Professorship along with The Nina C. and John T. Sessions Distinguished Professorship are the two endowed professorships specified for the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Endowed professorships provide important funds in perpetuity to support faculty salaries, research, teaching and the service activities of exceptional faculty members. One of the Division’s top fundraising priorities is to increase the number of endowed professorships to help recruit and retain outstanding faculty members.
