The Third Annual Student and Alumni Mentor Mixer was held on Saturday, February 6 at Carrington Hall. Twenty-eight alumni and 80 students were in attendance.
The alumni brought knowledge from UNC Healthcare, Duke, the VA and more in specialties as diverse as oncology, education, psych mental health and public health.
Interim Dean Donna Havens offered words of welcome followed by comments from Dr. Bev Foster and Kathy Moore. Students and alumni then broke off into smaller discussion groups based on areas of interest to allow time for networking and focused question and answer sessions.
The mixer was made available by the SON Undergraduate Student Governance Council, the SON Alumni Association and the SON Foundation, Inc. A raffle was held for three students to win shadowing opportunities with alumni Erin Fisher, BSN ’04 at the Adult Abdominal Transplant at UNCH, Wes Scercy, BSN ’12 in the Surgery/Trauma ICU, or Deborah “Hutch” Allen, BSN ’81, MSN ’97, PhD ’14 in Oncology at Duke.
Thanks to all for their participation!
