UNC-CH Psychology Department Does ALS ICe Bucket Challenge
Earlier this week, members of the UNC-CH Psychology Department participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in honor of our colleague, Dr. Steve Reznick, who was recently diagnosed with ALS. We now challenge the UNC-CH Dean’s Office to participate and everyone who watches the video to donate to an ALS organization. Steve has chosen the Duke ALS Clinic for our donations, so any money we collect on behalf of the department will be sent there. Check out an article about the event in the Daily Tarheel as well.
