The UNC School of Medicine's Clinical Week pulls medical students out of the classroom and sends them to communities across North Carolina to gain medical knowledge and develop clinical skills through interaction with primary care physicians and their patients. Last week, the UNC SOM Facebook page captured the Clinical Week experiences of first-year medical students. Please take a moment to see where our students went and to read what they learned, as shared in their words. And if you haven't already done so, "Like" the UNC School of Medicine on Facebook.
After losing their jobs and life savings, husband and wife Scott and Dottie Boeving of Wingate, N.C. are now fighting for their health. Dottie suffers from a soft-bone disease which makes mobility difficult, and Scott was diagnosed in 2009 with Stage IV non-Hodgkin's mantle cell lymphoma. Despite everything being taken away from them, Scott and Dottie are a model of faith, joy, and hope.
