I’d like to take advantage of the pages of Yale Medicine to remind my friends and colleagues of Alumni Weekend on Friday and Saturday June 6 and 7. Over the course of three days you’ll have an opportunity to visit the new education and research building at 300 Cedar Street, which began filling up with scientists and laboratories in the spring. On Saturday, our symposium will feature discussions of Infectious Disease’s Impact on Society and Public Safety.

Festivities will start on Friday with the traditional New England Clambake and continue Saturday with private class gatherings. Our hospitality tent on Harkness Lawn will be open for respite and refreshments and a chance to meet current medical students who will be happy to assist you with any special requests you may have.

For all of us Alumni Weekend is a time to celebrate our accomplishments and share insights and reflections with one another.
