WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A new $1 million distinguished professorship will help UNCW fight cancer.

The Lucy Ann Boddie-Brewer Distinguished Professorship will allow the School of Nursing develop new programs focused on the deadly disease.

The gift is named in honor of a woman who died of cancer in 1994. The Brewer and Boddie families’ gift of $667,000 will be matched by $333,000 from the state’s Distinguished Professors Endowment Trust Fund.
