Fall ushers in reunion classes

The classes of 1953, 1958, 1968, 1978, 1983 and 1988 will celebrate their milestone reunion years on October 4 and 5 in New Orleans.

The weekend begins with a continuing medical education seminar presented by Dr. Timothy Harlan, executive director of the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine, and Chef Leah Sarris, the center's program director on Thursday, October 3. During the three-day seminar, alumni will learn about the correlation between healthy eating and science during hands-on cooking classes.

On Friday, October 4, tours of the medical school will be given by a delegation of students followed by a welcome reception at the newly renovated J. Bennett Johnson Building. During the reception, two distinguished alumni will be recognized as the 2013 Outstanding Alumnus and the C.D. Taylor Award recipient.

Saturday evening attendees will celebrate with their classmates at a variety of locations throughout New Orleans, including Galatoire's, Arnaud's, Ruth's Chris and Tujague's.

"Reunions are always a wonderful time to catch up with old classmates and reminisce about their glory days at Tulane medical school. I hope that our alumni are looking forward to the special celebration," says Cynthia Hayes, director of medical alumni affairs.

As part of this year's reunion festivities, classes have also joined together to garner support for the Medical Annual Fund. Reunion classes look to raise a total of $367,000 in support of research, student scholarships and educational programming.
