Community Service Day
The Mayer Society has been in existence for over a decade and seeks to recognize and honor UNC medical and allied health students who have contributed time and energy to community and international service activities.  By honoring such service, the Mayer Society seeks to promote the commitment of students to community health, and to foster the partnerships between members of the medical profession and the community.

Zollicoffer Lecture
The Zollicoffer Lecture was established in 1981 by members of the UNC chapter of the Student National Medical Association.  It was named in honor of Lawrence Zollicoffer, M.D. (1930-1976), the fourth African American graduate of the UNC School of Medicine; founder of the Garwyn Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland; and a supporter and activist in the struggle for civil and human rights.
