August 2017
Greetings,
 
I'm excited to share with you this month's issue of our e-News. Not only are there important announcements, but there are also stories of students whom we've recently welcomed to campus: not only the Class of 2021 MD students, but also highly engaged high school and undergrad students from across the country.
 
The BUSM Alumni Black History Symposium (previously the BUSM Alumni Black History Month event) has been rescheduled after the cancellation due to the snow storm last winter. We hope you can join us for this program to learn about the history of Solomon Carter Fuller and engage with distinguished panel members on the topic of microaggressions. Please save the date!
 
Our BUSM Phonathons begin in September. You are welcome to attend in person and mingle with our students or speak with one of them over the phone.  Your support is appreciated. Please take a moment to let us know which one you can attend, so we are prepared for your arrival!
 
We continue our new program highlighting BUSM Alumni Neighborhood Events. Our next neighborhood event will be at MGH. This is a special opportunity to connect with colleagues whom you didn't realize are fellow BUSM alumni. The alumni team and I hope you can stop by Alibi at The Liberty Hotel for food, drinks, and relaxation.  Click the link to register.  And let us know if you would like to work with us to develop a neighborhood event in your community.
 
With all of the upcoming opportunities to say hello, I hope to see or hear from you soon. I wish you all the best until then.
