Dear Alumni and Friends,

The Upper Valley is in bloom, and we find ourselves in the midst of what we hope is a post-pandemic transition. Class Day will be celebrated in a hybrid fashion on May 26, with students allowed to invite a limited number of guests. And we’re very excited to report that this year’s Prouty—the 40th anniversary of the Upper Valley’s largest family-friendly fundraising event for Dartmouth’s and Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center—will include both in-person and virtual participation options. I’ve heard that a number of alumni are participating and want to give a shout-out to Darcy Kerr MED’10, Kathy Kirkland MED’86, Nancy Philips MED’79, and Dawn Ellen Carey D’86, TDI’14. Thank you all for your support of this momentous event. For those of you who want to participate live or virtually, there’s still time to register. Sign up today!

Be well,

Amanda Bassett
