1993 - 10th reunion
Most of us agreed that we looked the same and that no one had aged. Most of us had moved beyond or were on the verge of moving beyond the fellowship-training era. Conversation focused on practice associations, billing, mortgages and children. In keeping with Yale tradition, the class continues to demonstrate leadership in areas in and out of medicine. We were all delighted to find the Yale System still intact!! The reunion was attended by 18 alumni and several family members.
Juan Bartolomei is practicing neurosurgery at Yale. He and his wife, Nicole, were both present. A few alums retired to Juan’s place in Madison, Conn., after the clambake to reminisce about good times. Adina Chelouche and husband George Tellides, M.D., a cardiovascular surgeon at Yale, came with children Theodore, Julia and Alexander. Adina is practicing obstetrics and gynecology at Yale.

Myles Greenberg, who traveled from North Carolina, has joined a venture capital investment firm interested in promoting biotechnology. He continues to serve as part-time faculty in emergency medicine at the University of North Carolina. Gregory Heinen brought the entire clan all the way from Riverside, Calif.

The reunion was certainly a joyous celebration and ended after dinner with hugs, handshakes and good wishes. We hope all 1993 grads will plan to be in New Haven in 2008 to celebrate our 15th reunion.
