Vanderbilt Medical Alumni Reunion 2010
Reunion 2008 was a huge success, thanks in large measure to a record number of Vanderbilt Medical Alumni participants. While our next medical reunion is more than a year away, we are already making plans for the Reunion 2010 weekend, in conjunction with Homecoming 2010. Please note that Medical Reunions are held biennially on even years. While we will not have a medical reunion in 2009, the VMAA will hold an Open House during the 2009 Homecoming activities. We invite all those coming to campus for VU undergraduate reunions to join us for this event on Oct. 16.

Our next Vanderbilt Medical Alumni Reunion will be held Oct. 21-23, 2010.

Vanderbilt School of Medicine 2010 Alumni Directory
The VMAA is working with Harris Publishers to produce our next VMAA print and CD directories. You will receive more information via e-mail and mail about this project. Your participation will refresh your Vanderbilt database profile and help us keep connected with you even if you choose not to purchase a directory. We project a June/July 2010 distribution date for our new directories – well in advance of our next Medical School Reunion in the fall of 2010.

VUconnect Community and Facebook
Vanderbilt University launched VUconnect in June, a new online community to replace the university’s previous online database Dore2Dore. VUconnect is accessible to both students and alumni, and can be used to network, stay connected with friends and read about VU and VUSM news and upcoming events. Of note, VUconnect interfaces with Facebook, and in anticipation of the VUconnect launch, the VMAA formed a VMAA Facebook group. All medical alumni are invited to join our VMAA Facebook Group by e-mailing vumcalum@hotmail.com to indicate your interest.
