We are deeply saddened to share with you that we have lost a dear friend and colleague, Dr. Michael O’Malley. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family during this trying time. Michael’s kindness and infectious smile spread warmth throughout the entire cancer center. He served as the Associate Director of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and committed over 30 years of service to the state of North Carolina. An exceptional leader, many knew him as a great “connector” and was beloved by everyone he connected with at UNC. Dr. O’Malley also served as an adjunct associate professor of health policy and management at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health where he was a mentor for countless students over the years. He co-directed the Cancer Control Education Program, an NCI-funded pre- and postdoctoral training program in cancer prevention and control.
Here, we remember his legacy and invite you to do the same by providing a memory or thought about Dr. O’Malley in the comments below.
