Greetings Alumni & Friends, Since July I have had the opportunity and pleasure to visit all of our campuses, meet with faculty, students, alumni and donors and learn about this fine school. I have been struck by the extraordinary talents, abilities and dedication that exemplify the members of our extended community.
In this issue of Connections I think you will see fine examples of how our community members are making a difference. I feel privileged to be part of the OHSU School of Nursing community and I hope you do too.
