Time to celebrate!
Tuesday, April 26, the Department of Family and Community Medicine recognized the accomplishments of its students, faculty and staff at its eighth annual Awards Dinner. President Langell and department chair John Boltri, M.D., welcomed the audience, which was clearly excited to be having the event in person after a long hiatus due to COVID-19.
