Geisel MedNews

Dear Alumni and Friends,

There is much to celebrate in this issue of Geisel MedNews, from philanthropy to our upcoming double Alumni Awards ceremony. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to have an in-person Alumni Awards celebration last year and have put together a wonderful virtual program in honor of the 2020 and 2021 awardees.

I do hope you will join us as we recognize the work of some of our most notable alumni on May 6 at 6:30pm EST. Read more about the awardees and register today!

Be well,

Amanda Bassett
