Hansbrough Joins School as Associate Director of Development

Tami Hansbrough, an experienced professional within medical marketing and non-profit fundraising, has joined the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry as associate director of development.

Hansbrough joined the School on Dec. 8. In her new role, she will serve as a fundraiser specializing in major gifts and supervise an annual fund program focused on alumni and friends within North Carolina and beyond. She will work with Dean John N. Williams and Brad Bodager, assistant dean for advancement, to develop and implement strategies to sustain and increase support for the School of Dentistry.

“Extremely effective at establishing, building and maintaining donor relationships, Tami has a track record of success in securing donor support for humanitarian causes and promoting the education of underserved populations,” Bodager said. “Tami has displayed understanding and great respect for the work and goals of the health professions. I am confident she will be particularly effective in communicating and advancing the goals of the UNC School of Dentistry.”

Hansbrough received her bachelor’s degree from Southeast Missouri State University and has led marketing efforts related to medical organizations and outreach – including her leadership of a women’s health fair in her former state of Missouri.

“I am excited for the opportunity to join the UNC Dental School and the development team,” Hansbrough said. “Together, I believe we can build on the rich tradition of the School for an even brighter future.  I look forward to working with the alumni, faculty and staff to attain the goals of the School of Dentistry.”
