1988 - 20th Reunion

It is hard to believe that it has been 20 years since we left New Haven, especially since everyone who attended looked unchanged from our medical school days. Five of us took a break from chauffeuring our children to their various activities and returned for this year’s reunion.

Dave Chelmow arrived for the Saturday night dinner. He is the director of the ob/gyn residency program and the IRB chair at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. He and wife Fay, a hospice nurse, live in Newton, Mass. They have two children, Ben, 15, and Jenny, 11.

Nicole Davis and Alex Vukasin also attended the Saturday night dinner after driving up from Princeton, N.J. Nicole is a gynecologist in solo private practice and Alex is a urologist in a group practice. They have two children, Gabrielle, 16, and Alex, 13.

Irene Freeman attended most of the reunion festivities. She is a pediatrician in a group practice in Chicago. She lives with husband Bob McDonald, an economist at Northwestern University, in Evanston, Ill. They have three children, Claire, 15, David, 13, and Henry, 11.

Rhonda Karol attended the Saturday night dinner with husband Gordon Berger, a managing director of the Bank of New York Mellon (and a very good sport as he was the only non-alum and non-physician present). She continues working as a dermatologist in Forest Hills, N.Y., in the solo private practice she started 13 years ago. They live in Roslyn, N.Y., with their two children, Elizabeth, 13, and William, 10.

We reminisced about absent classmates and exchanged stories about our last sightings of various class members. We also very much missed Martha Brochin, who passed away since our last reunion. We hope that more of you will return to New Haven for our next reunion.
