Excitement runs high in September at the University of Minnesota with the return of students and events of all types. On September 23, 24, and 25, Medical School alumni joined the fun when members of eight classes reconnected at the Medical Alumni Society’s Reunion Weekend.

Over the three busy days, alumni caught up with former classmates, learned about promising research under way at the University, participated in a medical education forum, and toured the new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital.

New this year was a special Hippocrates Café, part of an ongoing series of events that explore health care topics using professional actors and musicians. Many alumni concluded their visit by watching the Gophers play Northern Illinois at TCF Bank Stadium.
