Zomorodi Selected as Team Lead for Carolina Next

Meg Zomorodi Phd, RN, ANEF, FAAN has been invited to serve as the Team Lead on the leadership team of Carolina Next: Innovations for Public Good, the University’s new 3-5 year strategic plan. She will specifically help oversee the implementation of Objective 6.2: Achieve impact for North Carolina by supporting faculty who conduct results-driven research on problems with critical implications for the state, which is under the “Serve to Benefit Society” initiative.

This objective includes:
• Launch the Provost’s Initiative on Rural Engagement and Partnerships
• Advance the Interprofessional Education and Practice Initiative
• Apply the learnings from international collaborative research activities to problems facing the state of North Carolina
• Increase participation in the Pathways to Impact, an online “mini MBA” for faculty interested in entrepreneurial endeavors
• Develop channels for sharing Innovate Carolina’s County Mapping that illustrates UNC-Chapel Hill’s engagement in North Carolina

We are fortunate that Dr. Zomorodi is one of 3 faculty representing the School of Nursing. Drs. Shielda Rodgers and Rumay Alexander are also serving as Team Leaders. Congratulations Team!
