On April 4, six of the School of Nursing’s eight Visiting International Scholars gathered with their mentors over lunch to discuss not just their current research, but to share stories about themselves and the experiences they’ve had since coming to UNC.

Dean Pergallo Montano also stopped by to introduce herself and share her feelings on how important a global perspective truly is. There was lots of good food and even more laughter as scholars and faculty got to know each other through this exclusive social event.
