What are you doing in early June? I hope you’re planning to come to the 11th Annual All-School Reunion Weekend, June 3–4, 2011. Whether you’re an alumnus or alumna, a faculty or staff member, a student, or a friend of the School, this weekend is for you — we have plenty of memorable and interesting things in store. This year’s theme, “to your health,” will help us all focus on the importance of taking care of ourselves — so we’re good role models, especially to patients. Learn more at www.uwmedalumni.org/all-school-reunion.
I’d also like to encourage our alumni to become more involved with the alumni association. There are so many ways, big and small, to help students and to represent the School of Medicine. Have ideas about the association’s role? Become a board member. Want to stay connected to your classmates? Be a class representative. Think it’d be fun to meet medical students? Sign up for one of many student-oriented programs; two of the most requested, SAID and HOST, are explained on page 16.
For a full list of opportunities, visit the “get involved” page, or contact our alumni relations staff at 206.685.1875, toll free 1.866.633.2586 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing you in June!
