Dear Canby Robinson Society Members:The Canby Robinson Society (CRS) has a rich history of superb leadership, and Kitty Murfree’s vision and dedication over the past two years have impacted our ability to continue to reach new members and capture the imagination of those who have been part of the CRS family for many years. It is with great humility and enthusiasm that I step into the role as president of the CRS, and I look forward to building upon the legacy of past presidents and volunteer leaders.
CRS recently conducted a tour of the new Critical Care Tower, which provided our members and guests with a greater understanding of the impact that state-of-the-art facilities have on the care of our patients and how these facilities also meet the needs of their families.
In the coming months, the Canby Robinson Society Scholarship Selection Committee will review a slate of incredibly talented and accomplished medical school applicants and then host the candidates during the medical school’s “Second Look Weekend.”
As CRS president, I will work closely with members of the Coalition for Canby Robinson Society, whose role is to identify new supporters for the many educational programs and discovery initiatives that have propelled Vanderbilt’s standing among the elite medical centers in the world. We look forward to reaching out to individuals throughout the region, sharing with them the many touching stories of superb patient care, impactful teaching and mentoring, and groundbreaking biomedical research. Among these individuals are many who have benefited from care at Vanderbilt, either personally or through friends and family members, and have a desire to give back.
Paul Sternberg, M.D.
Canby Robinson Society president
