Dr. Lee Beverly, professor and former chair of the Department of Nutrition, died on March 24.
Beverly came to UNCG in 2012 as chair, a position he held until 2015. He was a distinguished scholar, receiving funding from NIH to support his research regarding hypothalamic mechanisms regulating energy balance and feeding behavior. He enjoyed all aspects of academia and mentored numerous students and faculty at UNCG – and The University of Illinois Urbana Champaign prior to coming to Greensboro.
There are no services planned but Beverly’s family and friends welcome others to join them in the Walk to Defeat ALS in Greensboro on May 11.
“Lee was also admired by his friends and colleagues as he managed his disease with incredible grace and courage never complaining throughout,” said current Department of Nutrition chair Ron Morrison. “A true friend that will be missed.”
