Congratulations to Dr. Sheri L. Carroll on being chosen as one of the recipients of the 2014 Razor Walker Awards. The honor, awarded by the UNCW Watson School of Education, is given to individuals who have “walked the razor’s edge” – through their vision, tenacity, courage and sacrifice, which have made a difference in the lives of young people in our state.
Dr. Carroll is the Medical Director for the NHRMC NICU. She shares her incredible skills and talents at hospital, state, and national levels through the Perinatal Quality Collaborative of North Carolina and the Vermont Oxford Network (VON) Quality Collaborative, which works to improve the quality of care delivered to neonates.
Under Dr. Carroll’s leadership in collaboration with Coastal Carolina Neonatology, the NHRMC Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital was among three featured centers of innovation selected to participate in a project being produced by VON. In October, the VON film crew was onsite to collect footage of several NICU families at NHRMC for use with an Internet-based quality improvement collaborative named NICQ Next: Innovations in Newborn Care in 2014.
Dr. Carroll, a Wilmington native, received her medical degree at University of North Carolina, completed her Pediatric Residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, N.Y., and completed her Neonatal Perinatal fellowship at UNC.
Dr. Carroll will accept her award during a ceremony scheduled for May 1 on UNCW’s campus. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Carroll for her excellence in patient care.
