Letter from the Chair: Spring 2017
Share |

Dear Fellow Alumni,

To all of you who support our Alumni Society whether through volunteerism, giving to your class scholarships, attending events, advocacy, or working behinds the scenes to enhance our organization, I am grateful for your participation.  There are so many ways to be involved and I encourage each of you to stay connected with your alma mater.  Click here to learn about some Volunteer Opportunities.

Our recent Annual Alumni Society meeting was very successful. It was wonderful to see several alumni and faculty attend, which I take as a very positive sign for our organization's future. In addition to re-electing Dolores Lowe, MD ’93; Rahul Mehra, MD, Chris Pittman, MD ’88, Elizabeth Sagatys, MD ’03 and Deborah Trehy, MD ’78 for a second term of service on the Board, we welcomed new board members David Cooper, MD ’96 and Rose Tillis, president elect of MCOM's Student Council. We also thanked exiting board member Dan Riggs, MD ’81 for his service on the Board over many years. Dan was instrumental in the "first wave" of organizing the Alumni Society.

We also heard an energetic update about USF's downtown plans from Dr. Lockwood--amazingly more space may be needed even before construction begins!

Later that evening, we were pleased to honor Peter Embi, MD ’97, our 2017 Distinguished Physician Award recipient.  He offered inspiring words of gratitude about MCOM when he accepted his award at the Commencement Dinner.

It’s been a very productive year!  I hope you share my excitement and sense of momentum when you learn more about the many things going on involving the Alumni Society, by reviewing our Annual Report.

Once again, please remember that as alumni, we can and do make an impact on student lives and the future of medicine, by making USF MCOM a philanthropic priority. The debt medical students face today is over $150,000, which makes scholarship support crucial. We need your support and your advocacy. One idea is a donation to your class scholarship fund which directly supports student scholarship. To donate to your class scholarship, click here.


We look forward to the annual MCOM Alumni Reunion Weekend on September 8 & 9, 2017 and we plan on introducing more exciting events and activities in the next few months.  To view all upcoming events, click here.


Best regards,
