Good afternoon, College of Medicine alumni,
After much consideration, we felt it was necessary to cancel all 2021 homecoming festivities. We need our frontline physicians, alumni, and friends to remain safe and healthy in order to provide care and vaccines to the public, especially in light of the surge in COVID-19 cases across Kentucky.
We are heartbroken at this announcement, but your best interests are our priority.
Kennedy Hill, associate director of philanthropy and engagement, will be in touch with your class leaders personally, and our team will work on incorporating engagement opportunities moving forward in hopes of a celebration next year. Kennedy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 859-562-2706. The team will reach out to those of you who have already completed your registration with details on the refund process. We have exciting things happening within the college and we can’t wait to share more details with you.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate this pandemic. We wish you all the best.
Charles H. “Chipper” Griffith III, MD
Acting Dean, UK College of Medicine
