Tale of two double lung transplants and one enduring tribute

For patients with end-stage chronic lung disease, every breath is tiresome and difficult. When the disease is no longer responsive to medical therapies, a lung transplant is a possibility for patients under the age of 70. Frank Sands is breathing new life after a double lung transplant. To show his gratitude, he made a financial gift to create an endowed professorship, supporting the future of UNC’s Lung Transplant Program.

Educational Tools Demonstrate Multidisciplinary Bedside Rounds

A new bedside rounding approach will become standard for internal medicine teaching teams at UNC Medical Center. Last year, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) selected UNC as a funding recipient for Back to Bedside, a resident-led initiative to empower medical residents and fellows to increase time with patients, to improve both physician and patient well-being. Medicine residents won a grant to implement a multidisciplinary project. The pilot began in October 2017.
