It gives me great pleasure to serve you as the new Alumni Association Board president. In my seven years as a board member, I have witnessed a renewed energy and excitement about our medical school. Your continued engagement with the students, faculty and each other will keep this momentum going!

I encourage you to consider the ways that you can reconnect with the College of Medicine. Staying in touch has never been so easy — and I guarantee you it will be very rewarding! We want your participation in whatever way works for you. Opportunities abound for all alumni: share knowledge and experience on career panels, attend regional events, be a judge at Discovery Day or assist with your reunion plans. And you can support the College with your annual gift.
The upcoming year also brings change. With the recent announcement that Dean Daniel V. Schidlow, MD, intends to step down next June, we will celebrate his 40-year-plus career at our affiliate St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and his outstanding service to the College of Medicine. Stay tuned for more details. Additionally, over the next two years, we will be diversifying our board membership, so if you are interested in getting involved please contact Alumni Relations.
Lastly, keep us updated, and please share your new contact information with us by calling 215.895.ALUM (2586) or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This will ensure that you receive alumni publications, invitations to events near you and other important news. You can also use the website and social media to stay connected.
Mark S. Codella, MD, HU '84
President, Alumni Association Board
P.S. Please save the date for Alumni Weekend, May 16-18, 2019! All alumni are invited to attend.
