We’re back! In 2022 we celebrated our first in-person reunion weekend since the COVID-19 pandemic began, as well as the first in the springtime, the first with Dean Sarah Szanton, and the first in our new building.
A Recap of Alumni Weekend
Discovery & Innovation Showcase
We got to learn about research funded by the Discovery and Innovation Fund. Launched in 2021, it awarded 11 grants to faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and pre-doctoral students and was made possible through gifts from Natalie and Wes Bush, Karen Combs, and a bequest from Gertrude R. Bengtson.
Isabel Hampton Robb Lecture with Dr. Nancy Glass
Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, MS, RN, FAAN delivered the 2022 Isabel Hampton Robb lecture, “Women and Pandemics: How Disease Furthers Gender Inequality.” She is professor, associate director of the Center for Global Health, and Independence Chair in Nursing Education.
Alumni Awards Brunch
We celebrated the jubilarians from the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Church Home and Hospital Classes of 1970, 1971, and 1972.
