The University of Tennessee Health Science Center

  Greetings from Memphis November 2015  
Happy Holidays!

As 2015 draws to a close, your friends at UTHSC wish you the best this holiday season. Thank you for your support of alumni engagement this past year. We enjoyed seeing you at our events, and we are thankful for all our volunteers. YOU made our programs great!

This fall alone we welcomed more than 200 alumni and guests who graduated 50+ years ago at our Golden Grads Reunion. A few weeks later, we hosted 120 students and alumni at our first "Dinner with Strangers" at the Memphis Zoo. And our class agent program is in full swing with our College of Medicine alumni kicking off this new initiative.

Our alumni chapter in Memphis has held several events this year, with our latest being a community service project, led by our volunteers, to host a fluid aid station at the 2015 St. Jude Marathon!

The New Year will bring even more opportunities for you to become involved. If you would like to volunteer, please complete the form online. Our calendar of events is also available online.

Before we bid farewell to 2015, if you are seeking the perfect gift for someone, try visiting UTHSC’s own VolShop. There you will find that perfect present for the UTHSC alumni in your life!

Thanks for a great year!

Associate Vice Chancellor for Alumni Affairs
