A Message from the Editor of Alumni Today

I am really proud to be a member of this organization. We are a vital part of Downstate. In addition to providing scholarships, the Alumni Association runs two mentoring programs for students in conjunction with the Dean's office, a white coat ceremony for incoming students, research scholarships, Match Day celebration for seniors, funding for student poetry and art magazines, and many other student activities.

We have a very active Board of Managers and Board of Trustees who are devoted to our mission to help students, encourage research, and plan for our annual reunions. I would encourage all alumni to join, contribute and become involved. We have a wonderful past and look forward to even more success in our school and in our association in the future.

As always, I hope to hear from you with your comments and suggestions.
