Health Policy and Management Alumni news
Greetings HPM Alumni!
Each fall we invite HPM alumni from across the country to come back to campus as a part of UNC Homecoming to connect with fellow HPM graduates and current students. This year the HPM alumni brunch will take place on Saturday, October 28 from 10-12 in the Atrium.
As a part of the brunch we will be honoring Dr. Bruce Fried’s service as Residential Masters Program Director for the past 23 years. This past July, Dr. Fried stepped down and returned to his Associate Professor role, teaching human resources management and global health. Dr. Paula Song took over as program director on July 1. We have created a scholarship/award in Dr. Fried’s name that will be used to support residential masters students who request professional development funding support to attend conferences and other presentations throughout the academic year. Please use this link to RSVP to the brunch. If you’ve already RSVP’ed via the Eventbrite invitation from one of your class representatives, we’ve got you accounted for so there’s no need to RSVP again.
If you can’t join us for the brunch, but you are interested in donating to the inaugural scholarship in Bruce’s honor, please follow this link and indicate “in honor of the Bruce Fried Scholarship” in the “what’s your inspiration to give?” text box. This will ensure that donations are captured appropriately. There’s a challenge amongst all of the classes that graduated during Bruce’s leadership to see which class can raise the largest amount of funding or have the largest class participation.
Additionally, we currently have a block of seats for the homecoming football game against Miami which begins at 12 noon. There are a limited amount of tickets left for $45. If you’re interested in purchasing football tickets, please contact Cathy Padgett at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
Finally, current PhD students and alumni will be recognizing Dr. Morris Weinberger’s years of service as the PhD program director on Friday evening, October 27 at 5pm in the atrium. Dr. Weinberger was named HPM Chair earlier this year. If you’re interested in learning more about the reception or attending, please contact Alecia Slade – email@example.com.
If you have any questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing you at some point during homecoming weekend!
