SON Celebrates Inaugural LeVine Professorship

On Monday, March 7, the SON community gathered at the Carolina Inn to celebrate the installation of Cheryl Giscombe PhD, RN, PMHNP-BC as the first Melissa and Harry LeVine Family Distinguished Professor of Quality of Life, Health Promotion and Wellness, a role she took over January 1.

The occasion kicked off with the season’s first Courageous Dialogue, led by Dr. Giscombe, who tackled the issue of “The Courage to be Well” before a packed house.

A reception followed, along with remarks by Melissa LeVine BSN ’77, MSN ’81, a longtime friend and supporter of the School of Nursing, as well as a strong advocate for wellness, quality of life, workplace health and well-being.

It was a shining day in Chapel Hill, both literally and figuratively, and we’re so grateful to the LeVines for their gift to the School and to Dr. Giscombe for the important work she does on behalf of the SON and citizens of North Carolina.
