A Message from the Chair
The Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine is a national leader in medical education, research, clinical care, and advocacy. Our physician-scientists and clinicians work from bench to bedside to deliver the best possible care to children, regardless of medical complexity or a family’s ability to pay. Our faculty teach a modern, innovative curriculum so education more closely resembles practice. Our residents and medical students have the passion and talent it takes to be excellent physicians. Our physicians are tireless advocates for children and families throughout the state and beyond.
As Chair, I have great pride in our mission and our accomplishments. Together, we develop and deliver treatments and cures to help children everywhere. I am excited to return to my home state and promote child health throughout North Carolina.

Warrior Mason’s Journey
The son of a UNC Children’s nurse spent his 7th birthday in the Chapel Hill Hospital battling cancer. (From CBS 17-WNCN TV). But, friends and strangers from all over the world are making sure he still has a reason to celebrate.
Although he’ll spend it in the hospital, his birthday won’t pass unnoticed. A friend of Ashley’s parents started a Facebook page asking for cards for Mason. Now cards and gifts are coming in from all over, not just for Mason, but his little sister and baby brother. “It’s so overwhelming. It’s a good overwhelming; It’s humbling,” said Jeremy Fannin. “It’s blowing our minds,” added a grateful Ashley. “We never expected it to turn into what it has.”
