A few minutes with Katie Morgan, PharmD

Katie Morgan, PharmD, is a clinical pharmacist working with neuro-oncology and genitourinary-oncology patients at the N.C. Cancer Hospital. It was during her father's four-year battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, that she found her calling in pharmacy. To honor her father and others who are fighting brain cancer, Morgan is running in the Head for the Cure 5K, which will be held Sept. 8 in Chapel Hill. Through her team, Ron’s Space Rangers, she is working to raise money for brain cancer research.

A few minutes with Ken Johnson

North Carolina native Ken Johnson knows what hard work looks like. He grew up on a dairy farm milking more than 50 cows multiple times a day, joined the Army right out of high school and has been fighting multiple myeloma for the past 20 years. We recently sat down with Johnson to talk about how he made a connection with UNC Lineberger, his involvement with the Patient and Family Advisory Council and why he feels volunteering is something everyone should do.

We recently sat down with Frye to talk about his love of chemistry, his interest in writing, and his desire to break the 50 mph barrier on his bicycle. He also shared that he and his wife will ride 60 miles on a tandem bicycle to support Team UNC Lineberger in The Victory Ride to Cure Cancer this May.
