“The work we will be doing in the Health Sciences Education Building will absolutely help transform health care in the region, if not the nation. To bring any of these academic disciplines to the Upstate would be significant – but to have the synergistic force of multiple disciplines and the simulation center will be extraordinary.”

Dr. Jerry Youkey, Dean, USC School of Medicine-Greenville
