The unparalleled access to resources that would help prepare him for medical school greatly influenced Bailey Allen’s ’17 decision to become a Levine Scholar. When making that decision, the biology major and public health minor felt that the Levine offered the most complete package of any scholarship he received in terms of mentoring, faculty, access to research, internship placement and more. “Through the Levine Scholars Program (LSP), I have been able to develop amazing relationships with some of the most influential people I have ever met. Accepting the Levine is by far the best decision I have made.”

Bailey is a Committee Board Member for the Undergraduate Research Conference and received first place in the Honor’s College for his research on pancreatic and breast cancers. He also attended the Gold LEAF Scholar’s Conference. Being captain for one of UNC Charlotte’s intramural soccer teams led to an invitation to play for Charlotte’s All Star Team. He is a volunteer for Second Harvest Food Ministry, Ronald McDonald House and Feeding Children Everywhere. As a public health intern, Bailey worked for Care Ring and Columbus County Health Department. He also interned at Victoria Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa and explored issues of health and HIV/AIDS from a sociological perspective while studying in Stellenbosch, South Africa. “Without the support and funding of the LSP, I would not have been able to amass so many experiences that have shaped my perspective of healthcare.”
