From the Chair of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine Alumni Society Board

Dear Fellow Alumni:


2017 was a great year for your Alumni Society and you should be proud of your many events and accomplishments as chronicled in previous newsletters.

Our most recent event was our first ever Fall Alumni Lecture on November 16, featuring Drs. Dominic D'Agostino and David Diamond. The event was well attended and generated a lot of buzz and discussion. They spoke about nutritional ketosis and the putative effects of cholesterol on heart disease, noting how simple dietary changes can have great impact on most western degenerative diseases. To view a story about the event and see the video recording, click here.

Your Alumni Society has many exciting events already planned for 2018. On April 20th – we will be hosting ASK – Alumni Share Knowledge – our Alumni and Student Panel and Meet and Greet event. We are seeking volunteers in a variety of specialties who are willing to participate on the panel and share advice with our students – click here if you would like to participate. 


 The Alumni Society Annual Meeting will be held on May 10 – we hope you will join us for Board elections, hear the Dean give a talk on the state of the medical college, and help us recognize our 2018 Distinguished Alumnus Award recipient. 


We look forward to our biggest alumni reunion yet! On October 5 & 6, 2018 we will celebrate both this year’s and next year’s milestone anniversaries! Mark your calendars!
