HAPPI Diversity Recruitment Events 2013

On July 16th and 17th , in the UNC School of Social Work, Sharon Thomas led HAPPI’s Diversity Recruitment Events for two groups of students.  The McNair Scholars and Carolina Advising Corp Students got a chance to hear about the different health schools at UNC. Representatives from Allied Health, Social Work, Public Health, Medicine, Pharmacy, and NC-HCAP presented vital information to the students about their respective programs and the many opportunities within their studies. The “working lunch” (provided by Jason’s Deli) provided a relaxed atmosphere where students were receptive to the information and appreciative for the presentation.
