Though lack of sleep, sunny weather and vacations aren’t considered valid excuses to miss class at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, cancer is.

For student Matthew Brown, chemotherapy treatments would have left him a year behind in school, but he’s been able to avoid missing any classes through the use of technology.
