Never Marry a Girl Who Doesn’t Like Bob Dylan
The words of the great philosopher Bob Dylan echo in my mind as I watch the video we are releasing today.
Come gather 'round people wherever you roam and admit that the waters around you have grown. And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone. If your time to you is worth savin', then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone. For the times they are a-changin'. (The Times They are A-Changin’)
Times in Harnett County have been a-changin’. Since 1997, the former “Blue Jean Capital of the World” has transformed itself into a center of medical innovation. It held on to its proud roots while leveraging its strengths to create new growth. It shook off a painful triple belly punch, gathered itself, and decided to swim rather than sink, benefitting the county, the region and the state.
A big factor in its ability to swim has been Campbell University. Today’s video profiles Campbell University’s latest success story -- its new School of Osteopathic Medicine, which will open in the fall.
This will be the first new medical school in North Carolina in 35 years. The school will help fulfill the vision of a healthy North Carolina and ensure that every resident, particularly those in financial need living in rural areas, has access to quality medical care.
