UNC Global Radiology, a RAD-AID Chapter

Advancing health equity through education, collaboration, and innovation.

UNC Global Radiology, a RAD-AID Chapter, was founded in 2012 by the UNC School of Medicine’s Division of Radiologic Science and the Department of Radiology. Global health includes issues that transcend national boundaries, like cancer, and that require worldwide, multidisciplinary cooperation — so our partnerships have a Local to Global approach.

Our efforts support the vision of UNC Health and advance the university’s aims within the Carolina Next strategic plan. We have active health equity programs in North Carolina, Kenya, and Malawi.
