Attend Lab Meetings and Events:

All HHIVE Lab meetings and events are open to anyone interested in health humanities at Carolina. Subscribe to the HHIVE Listerv to get updates about HHVIE straight to your email and consult our events calendar for upcoming meetings and programming.

Become a URA:

The HHIVE Undergraduate Research Assistant (URA) program requires a 5-hour a week commitment that includes attending bi-weekly lab meetings, working on HHIVE-related tasks in the lab, and regularly checking in with the HHIVE URA coordinator.

URAs can take on general HHIVE projects such as contributing to our blog, attending and covering LMC-related events, helping us create and implement marketing and graphic design strategies, researching funding, publication, and presentation opportunities, conducting literature reviews on topics related to HHIVE projects, and supporting faculty and graduate student research projects.

We look for ambitious and talented individuals who love jumping between and across disciplinary boundaries for the sake of creating a more diverse and holistic understanding of health. All majors and minors are encouraged to apply. HHIVE URA projects will be primarily self-directed, so prospective URAs should be self-starters who can work independently and in a group.

If interested, please attend a lab meeting before completing the URA Application. If you have questions about the URA program, please email

Submit to the HHJ:

Health Humanities Journal of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was established during the Fall 2016 semester by Manisha Mishra with Jane Thrailkill acting as the organization’s faculty advisor. The Health Humanities Journal assists in initiating and engaging discussion among the undergraduate and graduate communities about the Health and Medical Humanities fields.

The purpose of this journal is to inspire, encourage, and facilitate interdisciplinary thinking and collaborative work while developing and embodying a variety of ideas that relate to health, illness, caregiving, and medicine. Sponsored by HHIVE, Honors Carolina, and the Department of Social Medicine (UNC School of Medicine), the journal serves as an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to publish narratives, poetry, research, academic papers, editorials, photography, artwork, etc.
