Demetri Poulis, MD (left) chairman of the Outer Banks Hospital Development Council, expressed his appreciation to Peebles Harrison, a Nags Head attorney. Harrison served on the Development Council from April 2007 to May 2011. “I’m ready to continue supporting the hospital,” Harrison remarked before he eagerly inquired about plans for the hospital’s annual gala in January. The Outer Banks Hospital Development Council is a subsidiary of The University Health Systems Foundation in Greenville. The mission of the Council is to develop relationships and secure financial resources to support the health and wellness services of The Outer Banks Hospital. Harrison’s tenure on the Council saw great accomplishments from raising funds to open the Cancer Resource Center located in the Medical Office Building at the hospital to purchasing technology and equipment for the identification and treatment of cancer and other diseases.
