Geisel MedNews

Dear Alumni and Friends,

In case you haven’t heard, we recently announced that we’re moving forward with a hybrid double reunion September 17-19, celebrating graduates from class years ending in 0, 1, 5, and 6. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming alumni back to campus and offering a virtual experience for those who are unable to travel. If you’re planning on joining us, please remember to register by July 1.

I also want to share that we’ve welcomed two new members to the Development and Alumni Relations team—Jon Fitzgerald, executive director of development, and Megan Dodge, associate director of alumni engagement—both of whom look forward to connecting with you. 

Jon Fitzgerald Megan Dodge

As we head into a summer that looks a lot different from last year’s, I hope you have a chance to delight in the joys of the season: friends, family, fun, and relaxation!

Be well,

Amanda Bassett
