Members of the medical school classes are also reuniting this spring,
celebrating Alumni Weekend 2002 on April 19 through 20. Enduring values
in the midst of change is this years reunion theme.
Members of the Medical Schools 50th reunion class will likely touch
upon those enduring values when they record their memories during videotaped
interviews over the weekend. Theyll also join other alumni in learning
what changes lie ahead for the Medical School.
In addition, alumni will receive an update on construction of The Robert
H. Lurie Medical Research Center of Northwestern University on the site
of the former Passavant Hospital and participate in a panel discussion
on stem cells and genes in the practice of medicine. They will also learn
how virtual-reality technology is being used for training in the Medical
Schools Minimally Invasive Surgery Skills Laboratory.
On the reunions second day alumni will gather for luncheons
divided according to class years at the Ritz Carlton Hotel and
later for the reunion ball at the Hotel Intercontinental.
