COPH Alumni Events Scheduled as part of UAMS Alumni Weekend

We hope you will plan to attend the COPH Alumni events scheduled as part of the UAMS Alumni Weekend in August.  This year, we are particularly excited about the UAMS Showcase presentations and the noon COPH Alumni Luncheon scheduled on Saturday, August 20.  Last summer, we hosted the first COPH Alumni Luncheon and knew we wanted to make this opportunity available annually.  It is a great time for alumni to network and share their experiences as public health professionals.

This year, the UAMS Showcase presentations will provide a broad array of cutting-edge health presentations from which to choose. The COPH is sponsoring two showcases: “Global Health, in Arkansas and Beyond” to be presented by Dr. Nick Zaller; and “State of Public Health in Arkansas and the U.S.” to be presented by Dr. Joseph Bates.  The COPH Alumni Luncheon will follow the Showcase presentations and provide a casual lunch, featuring COPH alumna and Deputy Director for Public Health Programs at the Arkansas Department of Health, Ms. Stephanie Williams RNP, MPH.

We welcome your participation in all the UAMS activities planned throughout the weekend, but we are especially hopeful that you will make an effort to attend the COPH activities.   When you register, you will be able to choose the individual activities that you wish to attend.  As we build, nurture, and support our COPH alumni, your involvement is key and your feedback is important in helping guide the development of a COPH Alumni Association for all current and future alumni of the College. To register, simply go to giving.uams.edu/alumniweekend2016 where a full weekend description is provided.

We look forward to seeing you at the UAMS Alumni Weekend 2016,  where you can reconnect with COPH leadership and your fellow alumni.
