With Special Guest Michael L. Good, MD, CEO University of Utah Health
Featuring the induction of the Half Century Society, the presentation of the Distinguished and Young Alumni Awards, and a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the College of Nursing building.
Join us as we induct the Class of 1969 and alumni of previous years (1947-1968). We will celebrate with them and two special alumni who will receive the Distinguished and Young Alumni Awards. They will address us and share some of the great work they have been doing for the nursing profession, our communities, and beyond. The "9s" classes will be recognized for their achievements after nursing school. We also have reason to celebrate as 50 years ago the college moved to its final home against the beautiful Wasatch mountains overlooking the Salt Lake Valley. Please consider attending this luncheon where together we will reminisce about the "good 'ole days," hear about the amazing work being done now, and learn about what the future may bring.
