True partnership occurs when collaborators create new value together – sharing vision, expertise, and resources to accomplish mutual goals.
In this issue, you’ll find stories on just a few of the ways UNC Greensboro faculty, staff, and students are collaborating, both internally and externally, to create that value and a better world for us all.
You’ll learn about Guilford County’s and UNCG’s unique approach to battling the opioid epidemic. Lives are being saved by the translation of research into practice, with efforts informed by those in recovery, Guilford’s Emergency Medical Services and other local health care providers, and UNCG scholars and scholarship. (While social work students gain hands on experience with this state-of-the-art intervention, ensuring we have a next generation of professionals trained in evidence-based practice.)
