Celebrating Recent Grads
In September, the UVA Medical Alumni Association hosted its first-ever Recent Grads Weekend. This event was for MD alumni from the Classes of 2007-2021, with special milestone celebrations for the 5-, 10-, and 15-year reunion classes. More than 60 alumni and guests attended.
The weekend kicked off with a welcome reception on Friday evening. On Saturday morning, alumni gathered with student leaders for networking and an opportunity for mentorship and student leadership development. Senior Associate Dean for Education Meg Keeley, MD ’92 also spoke to the group during the morning program. On Saturday afternoon, alumni came together for an All Class Picnic and photographs on the Lawn, followed by milestone dinners held at the Quirk Hotel. The weekend wrapped up with a Bodo’s Bagel Breakfast at the Rotunda on Sunday.
