Lenovo CEO Funds Scholarship at UNC-Chapel Hill Medical School

North Carolina is a special place to Lenovo’s chairman and CEO Yuanqing Yang (YY). Not only is NC where Lenovo’s North American headquarters are located, but also a place where YY has called home and his children have attended school. He’s also very passionate about the research and innovation happening in the state at places like UNC-Chapel Hill, an institution close to YY's heart. For those reasons, it’s fitting that UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Medicine announced the inaugural scholarship recipients for the Yang Family Biomedical Scholars.
