The University of South Alabama Medical Alumni Association hosted its annual Medical Alumni Weekend June 3-5, 2016, at Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Ala. Fifty-five registered alumni attended the reunion.
The event is a multi-day class reunion held every summer that reunites USA medical graduates on the Gulf Coast. It offers Continuing Medical Education (CME) accredited courses and an alumni dinner sponsored by the association.
Several USA alumni presented lectures during the weekend. They included a presentation on developing physician leadership through mentorship by Dr. Janyce Sanford (COM '86), chief of emergency medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and a team lecture on medical clinics in the sugar plantations and prisons of the Dominican Republic by Dr. Tom Miller (COM '81), state health officer for Alabama, and Dr. Bob Chagrasulis (COM '81), general surgeon of Franklin Health.
During the annual meeting and luncheon of the Medical Alumni Association Board of Directors, Dr. Samuel Strada, dean of the USA College of Medicine, was recognized. He will be retiring later this year after 33 years of service.
The classes of 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006 and 2011 were honored at this year’s event. The Class of 1976 is the inaugural class of the USA College of Medicine and was presented a gift for celebrating its 40th class reunion. Dr. Kit Outlaw was also recognized for his service as president of the USA Medical Alumni Association from 2014 to 2016.
