Meet Our Team
NC-HCAP has nearly 40 years of experience in providing career and educational resources for North Carolina pre-college and college students, teachers, parents and community leaders. With a highly talented and dedicated staff, NC-HCAP is committed to guiding and supporting our students in making informed decisions about their educational and career paths.
Dr. Rosalyn Beecham-Green has been appointed the director of NC-HCAP. In this role, she provides leadership on strategic planning, policy development, fundraising, financial management, administrative and programmatic planning.
She plans to build on existing programs by developing ways to sustain relationships with program participants throughout the academic year. In time, she hopes to create a continuous pipeline of programs for underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students in North Carolina from kindergarten through college interested in health professions careers.

Additionally, she has held leadership positions at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, The University of Iowa and Howard University College of Medicine.
