Morsani College of Medicine Alumni Society

A message from Valerie Riddle, MD '89, Associate Dean for Alumni Engagement

Welcome to our July BULLetin newsletter! As we begin to return to a more normal life after a year like no other, I look forward to being able to gather with you, our alumni, to get to know you and to share the excitement of USF Health and the Morsani College of Medicine. The opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate YOU and your accomplishments is one of the goals for this e-newsletter. I hope you will enjoy reading about Drs. Eric Elster, Karla Bernardi, and Sam Freyaldenhoven this month. Dr. Elster reached a major career milestone by becoming a medical school dean, while Drs. Bernardi and Freyaldenhoven are headed to top-tier programs for their fellowships. In Alumni Notes, you will find other notable accomplishments by our alumni. Please share with us your proud moments and fun facts so that we can share them with our alumni!


Join us for the State of the College and Alumni Awards event on September 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the USF Health in Water Street building (or virtually if you are not in Tampa). RSVP today!


Alumni Weekend will be on October 22 and 23. We are excited to host this in person and hope to see you there! Register before August 31 to receive early bird pricing.


Finally, I want to say thank you to our outgoing Morsani College of Medicine Alumni Society Board members and to those joining us as new Board members. It is in no small part due to our alumni volunteers and leaders that we can continue to spread the word about your alma mater. We would love to have you involved with us! Update your contact information and let us know how you want to be involved!
