Spring 2022 Medical Alumni Events & Milestone Reunions
For the first time since 2019, alumni were able to gather together in Chapel Hill safely for an in-person Spring Medical Alumni Weekend event. It was a time to celebrate for classes from years ending in -2 or -7. In particular, the Class of 1972 met at the DuBose House to celebrate their 50th year class reunion. Congratulations to them and all the other classes on a wonderful celebration!
On Friday, April 1, alumni, faculty and staff joined together in a meeting of the National Loyalty Fund Committee highlighting the financial state of alumni giving with a special focus on the progress towards the new Roper Hall, scheduled to be completed in 2023. The Medical Alumni Council meeting was a time for reflection on the trials of the past few years but also a time to look forward to the progress being made at UNC and throughout the School of Medicine. The day concluded with an Awards Banquet celebrating the first group of in-person awardees since the spring of 2019. It was an uplifting event with inspiring speeches given by the new recipients of each award.
Saturday, April 2 was reserved for celebrations of Milestone Reunions at the DuBose House and the Carolina Inn. The Class of 1972 celebrated their 50th year reunion in grand style with a special dinner joined by special guests from the Class of 1967. The Classes of 1977 and beyond met at the Carolina Inn for a buffet dinner featuring music and televisions set up to broadcast the NCAA Final Four game between UNC and Duke. The UNC victory over Duke added an unexpected but appreciated exclamation point to the weekend!
Spring 2021 Virtual Medical Alumni Events & Virtual Milestone Reunions
Due to the continuing situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Spring 2021 Medical Alumni events, including our milestone class reunions, took place virtually. We had a great time gathering with our alumni on virtual platforms and plan on incorporating streaming elements into future events.
Although we were not able to be physically present for this event, we were very happy to be able to spend time with alumni, students and guests throughout the month of April and into the first weekend of May. We are very grateful to everyone who shared their time with their friends, classmates, colleagues and our staff this year.
Events are held throughout the year, but in case you missed one of our events, we publish a short summary of our most recent events for review. Thanks to all who attended and will attend in the future!
