Hello Medical Alumni!

Things are in full swing at The Warren Alpert Medical School. First-year students are still beaming from receiving their white coats, in-person and virtual events are being planned, and halls and classrooms at the Medical School are buzzing once again with students, staff and faculty.

Family Weekend is October 15-17
Brown University is planning an in-person Family Weekend and the Medical School is hosting a few events on Saturday, October 16, that might be of interest to alumni who live locally or happen to be in the Providence area.

  • Faculty forum (9 a.m.): Social Media, Violence, and Social Isolation Among At-Risk Adolescents with Megan Ranney, MD MPH'10 RES'08, and Nicole Nugent, PhD, from the Brown-Lifespan Center for Digital Health.
  • The Ruth B. Sauber Distinguished Alumni Lectureship (11 a.m.): Doctor You: How Technology Will Give Us More Health with Less Health Care given by Joel Selanikio MD’92.
  • Networking opportunity (12:30 p.m.): A chance for alumni and current medical students to meet in an informal setting to discuss anything from what it’s like living in a particular city to residency interview tips. For any alum looking to mentor the next generation, this event is a great place to start! To participate in this specific event, please register here.
