Polly Williams
Since retiring as a professor of English at NC State University, Polly Williams
has been a public policy advocate for older North Carolinians. In addition to
her work with the NC Coalition on Aging, where she served as an officer,
Polly has shared her knowledge, expertise, and time with a number of other
organizations including the NC Justice Center. She has volunteered with the
organization since 2001, specializing in issues related to aging and health.
