JOIN US for our Annual Alumni Dinner

We are trying to get a final head count for those who’d like to attend the Hopkins Alumni dinner in Toronto on July 26th (Thurs). We’ve reserved a few places already but need a more accurate # as some restaurants have a min or max size for large parties.  Please RSVP ASAP to Shizuka Aoki Let us know of any allergies!! Spread the word to other Hopkins alum (and of course non-alum) who might want to come and are not active on the listserve. We’ll try to keep it close the hotel but the ‘trendy’ restaurants are definitely towards the west end or north of the city (many of which can’t accommodate large parties!). Once we have a final head count I’ll post the location/menu. Feel free to contact Shizuka below with any questions!  Shizuka Aoki  Email: shizuka.aoki@GMAIL.COM

Jodi Chapman (’11) & Bricelyn Strauch (’11), 2011 Frank Netter Scholarship Winners

This award, given by the family and friends of Dr. Netter, will provide financial aid to students in the graduate program of medical and biological illustration. New advances in medicine now challenge the illustrator to create more innovative communication skills. The Scholarship Fund recognizes Frank F. Netter’s legacy to medical art; his insistence on thoroughly understanding the subject matter and his high artistic standards. For many decades Frank Netter’s name has been synonymous with medical illustration. Doctors, medical students, health-care providers, and sometimes, curious patients have looked through copies of the CIBA Clinical Symposia for Netter’s illustrations providing sought-after information. Then, later, numerous bound volumes, the CIBA Collection of Medical Illustrations, again offering Netter’s works depicting both the anatomy and pathology of particular systems and organs. Frank Netter lives on as an educator in the medical sciences and an inspiration to students developing the skills of medical illustrator.
