Abigail Knight didn’t have to choose between her love of history and medicine. At UNC Greensboro, she gets hands-on experience in both.

With support from the School of Nursing and Lloyd International Honors College, Abigail conducted archival research on how the medical field has evolved over time. The research experience – paired with her coursework and clinical work – has given her the confidence to pursue her dream of completing a doctorate in nursing and researching ways to improve how neonatal intensive care units operate. And, of course, to save as many babies as possible.
