On Monday, July 30, 2012, the College of Medicine’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs hosted a Gator Gathering at the National Medical Association Annual Convention & Scientific Assembly in New Orleans, La.

Established in 1895, the NMA provides support for 30,000 African American physicians and their patients. The annual convention offers educational sessions and exhibits that foster professional development while the gathering gives UF COM graduates the opportunity to reconnect. This year, graduates celebrated the first anniversary of the establishment of the Willie Sanders Scholarship. Medical alumni affairs staff shared with attendees the good news that the scholarship has reached endowment status! See more photos of your fellow alumni at the Gator Gathering event here.
